Atlantic Ocean Crossing by a Solar-Electric Autonomous Vessel

Atlantic Ocean Crossing by a Solar-Electric Autonomous Vessel

Mahi Two, an uncrewed surface vessel, has become what is believed to be the first to cross the Atlantic Ocean using only solar power. The autonomous robotic boat left the coast of Spain in September 2021 and made landfall in Martinique, in the French Lesser Antilles, six months later, after more than 4,300 nautical miles at sea.

Converting Waste Heat into Electrical Power for Ships

Converting Waste Heat into Electrical Power for Ships

On vessels where moving to low-sulphur fuel has created a surplus of steam, the E-PowerPack will transform the excess into a free source of power. Going forward, the E-PowerPack will also be vital as energy recovery becomes key in transitioning to green methanol and ammonia.

Ballard & ABB Receive Approval for High-Power Fuel Cell Concept

Ballard & ABB Receive Approval for High-Power Fuel Cell Concept

The high-power fuel cell unit is a flexible solution that will support the energy needs of multi-megawatt scale vessels with diverse use cases. For example, a cruise vessel operating in coastal areas could either run entirely on zero-emission fuel cell power or switch to it when operating in environmentally sensitive areas or emission control zones, while a ferry with a regular schedule and frequent bunkering opportunities could operate solely on fuel cell power.

Full-Scale Offshore Charging Station for Vessels at Offshore Wind Farm

Full-Scale Offshore Charging Station for Vessels at Offshore Wind Farm

Maersk Supply Service, a part of A.P. Moller-Maersk, is launching its offshore vessel-charging venture, Stillstrom, to support the decarbonisation of the maritime industry by eliminating idle emissions. Together with Ørsted, Stillstrom will demonstrate the world's first full-scale offshore charging station for vessels at an offshore wind farm, scheduled for installation later this year.
