Hybrid solutions to reduce CO2 emissions in platform supply vessels
This paper presents the CO2 emission reductions obtained by using different hybrid solutions on the power generation system of a platform supply vessel (PSV). The proposed solutions consist of auxiliary generators, three types of batteries and a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). The selection of alternative power system configurations is made considering the possibility of retrofitting an existing PSV. The Homer software is used to perform simulations and quantify the CO2 emitted by each configuration. The highest reduction in CO2 emissions is 10.21%.
