Synopsis: The presentation will discuss three sustainable solutions for DP vessels. 1) Enhanced closed ring for DP3 powerplants. The system was developed in cooperation with class societies, leading naval architects and energy companies. It has been installed on 11 DP3 drilling and accommodation vessels/rigs. The presentation will give key notes about the system and its advantages and benefits. 2) ESS solutions for drilling rigs – Siemens Energy BlueVault ESS concept. The presentation will outline the advantages of Siemens Energy’s battery design, selected projects and verified benefits after installing the Siemens BlueVault system. It will also cover safety, GHG reductions and fuel savings and provide information about Siemens’ digital solution for real-time verification of performance. 3) Bluedrive Plus C system – the most recognized DC grid solution in modern offshore vessels.

Synopsis: Shipowners are often concerned about battery durability and performance over time, especially since every vessel has different operating profiles that severely affect the battery aging and performance characteristics. In this presentation we propose to build a Li-ion battery model based on an LFP cell supplier that can predict the capacity loss depending on the operational calendar and cyclic aging. Such a model can be used to define a warranty strategy and allow predictive maintenance for every single pack. This would give the shipowner clarity on the reliability of the vessel while reducing costly unplanned downtimes for troubleshooting and maintenance.

Synopsis: Battery storage is a key component of electric and hybrid marine vessels, but batteries are technically complex and change their properties over time. In some cases they also catch fire (see, for example, the large recalls of LG Chem and General Motors this year). Advanced battery monitoring can drastically improve the safety and reliability of battery systems. The presentation will give a deep dive into the technical basics (‘how to do it’) and showcase real-life examples based on over 500MWh of monitored batteries, including marine applications.

Synopsis: The HMI design in many marine applications is not keeping pace with developments in other systems and materials. The switches and control panels of a conventional marine HMI interface have remained unchanged (or substantially the same) over the last 30 years in watercraft of all types. In this review, we will present the current trends and developments, as well as the planned changes intended for the industry. We will discuss different types of materials, feedback and communications developed for HMI controls and specifically designed for the marine environment, be it shipborne, oceanographic equipment, pleasure craft, oil platforms, diver related or port-side.

Synopsis: Since 2007 EcoEngines BV has been focused on clean technology for automotive and maritime drives. In 2015 we started this adventure to change all polluting 4x4 trucks and ships into clean electric trucks and boats with a long driving range similar to a Tesla 3/X or Nissan Leaf. Our e-motor conversion kit replaces the entire front and rear axles of the original vehicle. Our e-motor conversion kit replaces the entire engine and Z-drive of the original Venice water taxi. Up to 300hp and 35 feet.

Synopsis: In low-power electric marine applications up to 15kW, 48V is very common. Beyond this range, high-voltage (HV) systems with up to 800V are the only option so far. However, HV is not desirable, especially for water applications. A new motor design can deliver high-power operation at low voltage (LV), avoiding many of the risks of HV system technologies. The presentation will discuss the use of LV in comparison to HV. Moreover, it will show how the performance of 50kW is possible with touch-safe voltages, and how the 48V drive can be easily integrated.

Synopsis: A vessel’s drivetrain can be tested with customized cycles; the battery can be automatically charged with more than 200kW. Data monitoring of the battery during the charge and discharge periods gives insights into all details and ensures a high degree of safety during prototype testing. The durability of the electric drive and its battery is proved in these kinds of tests as well. This presentation will describe a vehicle-related project for 24/7 endurance testing of electric drivetrain prototypes, including their traction batteries.

Synopsis: By 2050, the global population is projected to reach 10 billion, with 75% of people residing in cities. Facing this rapid population shift and the resulting gridlock of land-based transportation, urban planners are looking to their waterways to ease congestion on city streets, creating integrated water-land public transport networks with climate-friendly water taxis, ferries and other passenger vessels. Together with Fassmer Shipyard, Torqeedo will present a groundbreaking emission-free electric waterbus concept to meet these needs today. The session will cover boat design, maneuverability, battery technology, charging concepts and energy management.

Scania CV AB
Synopsis: Scania’s coming hybrid and fully electric power systems will have a great impact on performance and usability. The systems consist of in-house-developed components and add real customer value with significant reductions in energy consumption, noise and tailpipe emissions. The Scania systems will be modular and scalable, allowing customers to select from and combine a number of components based on the application and specific demands. In this presentation Scania will outline the opportunities it sees within hybrid and fully electric power solutions to create a more sustainable marine business.

Synopsis: The presentation will provide Santerno’s view on current trends, including fuel efficiency, electric and hybrid solutions, energy storage and different source integration (fuel cell, battery, DEP). It will discuss Santerno’s options for ship operational point optimization, and the company’s solution for superyachts, fishing vessels, PSV, OSV and tugboats.

Synopsis: A zero-emission ship using wind and shore power can be constructed. A ship with an overcapacity of wind power can charge batteries using the main propellor. Speeds can be controlled by adjusting the variable prop to charge. In low-wind situations, a flexible green power unit can be used. In this way, shipowners can maintain shipping schedules and society can have a green future.

Synopsis: As a global leader in specialty engineering materials, Rogers Corporation enables emerging technologies that support the circular economy, including e-mobility. As an example, in the electric vehicle market, our battery pad solutions allow electric batteries to withstand the stress of fluctuating compression and temperature and prevent thermal runaway. Battery pads are inserted between adjacent pouch cells in EV Li-ion batteries and are meant to supply a relatively low, cushioning, counterforce to the cyclic expansion and contraction of the battery cell over the course of the battery life. Moreover, given the proximity of the pad to the cell, it may help to shield adjacent cells from thermal runaway in the case of catastrophic heat generation. Here, we describe a singular foamed material that provides both functions.
