The future of shipping

Kolbjørn Berge
Project manager
Norwegian Maritime Authority
NORWAY
Shipping needs to change; it has to change more in the next decade than it has done in the last three decades. No stone should be left unturned to find the best solutions to achieve sustainable shipping. Stricter environmental requirements both from regulatory bodies and customers will shape shipping in the future. Why should shipping change and what will it be like in the future? How can the authorities facilitate this change?

09 h 30

A zero-emissions shipping world by 2040

Prasanna Colluru
Director corporate strategy
Future Proof Shipping
NETHERLANDS
Future Proof Shipping envisions a zero-emissions shipping world by 2040. We’d like to share our thoughts on the challenges facing the maritime industry and our views on what needs to change to usher in a zero-emissions shipping world in the timeline we envision. We realize this target is ambitious, but we believe that mapping out potential ways to achieve it is the first step toward actually getting there.

Testing results of a compact propulsion motor for commercial applications

Dr Russel Marvin
CEO
LC Drives
USA
LC Drives has completed testing of its in-slot cooled electric motor that is half the size of the next best in the world. This commercial product offers a significant space advantage compared with conventional high-performance permanent-magnet motors. This comparison will be shown, as well as how this technology scales to larger sizes required for direct-drive propulsion systems on large ships. Actual testing results will be shown compared with predicted values.

11 h 20

Development of a hybrid vessel simulator

Dr Bruno Carmo
Assistant professor
University of São Paulo
BRAZIL
We integrated electric and energetic models of hybrid power systems in the maritime mission simulator developed at the University of São Paulo. The model takes the dynamics of the power system into consideration in the simulation and can provide the efficiency, fuel consumption and emissions for a given mission. The system can be run in real time, with a complete interface with a pilot, or automatically, with pre-defined mission, weather and sea conditions, and pilot inputs. This simulator can be used as a testbed for different power system components and configurations, and as a valuable training and validation tool.

Offshore supply vessels: a comparison of propulsion system architectures

Romain Nicolas
Developer
Siemens PLM
FRANCE
Offshore supply vessels are the workhorses of the offshore industry, carrying equipment and personnel to offshore structures as well as performing other duties such as firefighting. The load profile of each OSV allows the electrical and drive power generation to be adapted to optimize efficiency for its specific usage. In this work, fuel consumption and NOx emissions of an OSV with four possible propulsion architectures with varying degrees of electrification are compared using system simulation. Constant and rapidly varying stationary electrical and speed profiles are used to evaluate the architectures under ideal conditions before they are compared using six-day industrial load scenarios.

12 h 00

System simulation as a beneficial methodology for optimizing hybrid vessels

Robert Strasser
Lead engineer
AVL List GmbH
AUSTRIA
Increased system complexity of hybrid applications demands new development approaches regarding optimization of maritime systems as well as for the classification process for vessels. Advanced co-simulation of entire vessels supports the component specification of energy and propulsion systems and the optimization of operating strategies, and facilitates lifecycle investigations and economic analysis. The multi-domain system simulation for a multi-purpose vessel is demonstrated for the evaluation of fuel-saving potential under consideration of an energy-storage system, and for the specification of the cell type of the batteries for given power requirements, by applying consistent plant modeling with an open and integrative co-simulation platform.

12 h 20

Study on different types of vessel drag and thrust models for integrated hybrid-electric marine propulsion system modeling tools

Prof Zuomin Dong
Professor and chair Department of Mechanical Engineering
University of Victoria
CANADA
This research compares four different types of vessel hull drag and propulsor thrust models used today and recently introduced in our work, including full-scale CFD simulations, reduced-order hydrodynamic models, low-order hydrodynamic models and generic parametric mathematical models. The different fidelity levels of these models, validated using vessel sea-trial data, and their diverse computation requirements are studied through case studies on the integrated modeling and optimization of hybrid-electric marine propulsion systems, as well as on the prediction and control of ship induced cavitation noise.

Power measurement on complex hybrid/electric drive systems

Klaus Lang
Development manager
HBM
GERMANY
Power measurements are challenging when it comes to complex hybrid or electric systems, consisting of various different components like multiple e-machines with three or more phases, gearboxes, inverters, batteries, and eventually a combustion engine. New approaches are needed to address these measurements, and at the same time other important signals like temperatures and vibrations need to be acquired and stored as well. The high voltages used in maritime e-drives are another challenge to be addressed.

14 h 20

Short-circuit fault current control in static frequency converters for BESS

Ivan Martinez-Ramos
Product development, regulation R&D manager
Ingeteam Power Technology, SA
SPAIN
Certification classes require that to be considered a primary generator and to reduce the number of DGs, a static frequency converter (SFC) must provide full discrimination for protection. Due to its semiconductors, an SFC is more limited and it is necessary to enable fast and efficient control of the output current to avoid tripping the protections of the converter. The purpose of this presentation is to analyze the different scenarios in which an SFC will provide short-circuit current. The response of the system to three-phase, two-phase and earth-phase short circuits will be analyzed.

14 h 40

Advanced battery-based energy storage, with an emphasis on electrical power systems

Dr Makhlouf Benatmane
Marine navy solutions leader
GE Power Conversion
UK
This paper will present an overview of energy storage systems and describe current capabilities in terms of kW and kWh, and considerations when integrating energy storage into marine vessels. Considerations will include types of applications, from high power, short duration to sustained power, long duration, and will describe the analysis required to optimize the energy storage asset and ensure adequate power system performance in terms of operational and common mode considerations when using pulse-width modulation (PWM) converters connected to battery or ultra-capacitor-based energy storage systems. Common mode effects will also be considered.

Case Studies and Applications
08 h 50 - 13 h 00

08 h 50

Electrifying waste-collection boats in Venice

Dr Angelo Bovo
Technical manager
Veritas SpA
ITALY
The presentation discusses the design of two electrically powered waste-collection boats as part of two pilot projects in view of wide adoption to replace the present diesel-powered fleet servicing in Venice. Two alternative engine concepts have been developed: a hybrid biodiesel-electric drive and a full-electric one, built around a fuel cell. The rationale of the whole project is the environmental issue, in terms of noise and emission reduction and also minimization of the inboard fluids that can potentially evolve into a leakage. The designs can be transferred to other vessels servicing Venice as well as other water sites.

German hydrogen- and battery-powered pushing barge

Kilian Hoffmann
Manager
EST-Floattech BV
NETHERLANDS
A consortium of companies is building the first German hydrogen- and battery-powered pushing barge, which will transport Siemens wind turbines from Berlin to Hannover. The ELEKTRA anticipates the desire to make all Berlin's transport zero emission by 2050. Because the harbor basins lie directly adjacent to residential areas, noise is also a major issue: electric motors generate 70% less noise than the current diesel engines. The project also includes the challenge of providing a bunkering infrastructure.

11 h 40

Hybrids for commercial barges

Graeme Hawksley
Managing director
Hybrid Marine Ltd UK
UK
Marine hybrid systems continue to find compelling applications in the commercial market. This presentation will detail a fleet of barges, the first of which came into service in spring 2018. Operating in central France, these 38m vessels provide scenic tours for 50 passengers. Operating from the battery bank alone, these craft provide a full day's operation in complete silence. Initially installed with a parallel/serial hybrid system, a pathway to eliminating diesel engines will be provided once shore-side charging infrastructure is better developed. The first vessel, Natalia, has been awarded the British Guild of Travel Writers award for best European project. Detailed system design and operating experience will be presented.

Case study of the first implementation of a modular serialized hybrid system

Tobias Kohl
Senior manager yacht applications
MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH
GERMANY
Electrification of propulsion has become one of the most common discussions in the marine industry. The main success factors are the comfort and performance of vessels, but also an optimized operation of conventional diesel engines. A main challenge is the development of a well-balanced and optimally sized installation. With the implementation of a hybrid system, the conventional separation between propulsion and onboard power generation is no longer valid, as both systems form an integrated power distribution network. Optimization of a complex power network in combination with an easy operation concept, including a user-friendly HMI, is of major importance.

Shore-to-ship power and port electrification: paving the way to zero-emission terminals

Roberto Bernacchi
Shore-to-ship power and smart ports global product manager
ABB SpA
ITALY
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has clearly recognized that reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is key to avoiding negative impacts on climate coming from the shipping sector. Elsewhere, the European Sea Ports Organization (ESPO) has confirmed that air quality in ports is priority number one. This is all paving the way for the development of the most efficient emission reduction technologies to be implemented on board and on shore. In this new scenario, electric and hybrid vessels are becoming reality, starting from short sea shipping routes where onboard batteries can be charged easily during port stopovers. While vessels are sailing toward a zero-emission future, ports are doing the same on land. Zero-emission terminals are now a reality, and the integration of e-mobility solutions into the port electrical grid means new technical challenges: how to make sure that, in addition to the standard electrical consumers – such as cranes, warehouses and buildings – electrical trucks, vehicles and vessels are receiving reliable power supply to achieve smooth 24/7 operation of the terminal? ABB is a pioneer in sustainable solutions for electrification, and the ultimate goal of its shore-to-ship power and smart ports is to facilitate the transition of the port concept: from traditional (a place of transit of people and goods) to modern and sustainable (totally integrated with the surrounding community).

Electric ships: who's in charge?

Ruud van Sloten
Consultant
EVConsult
NETHERLANDS
Our triple-layered model for developing a sustainable charging network for e-ships requires that all aspects should be taken into account when forming an integral approach to transport, the grid and urban planning. Current characteristics and future objectives concerning all three layers need to be taken into account to secure an optimized strategy. The model is used to weigh the arguments of different stakeholders and to make informed decisions.

15 h 00

Inductive charging of ferries

Mathias Wechlin
Director
IPT Technology GmbH
GERMANY
Electric vessels are either equipped with large, heavy batteries to last through the day or are obliged to be plugged in during operation, resulting in downtime. Batteries take away space; cables and charge plugs face wear and tear. They are a hassle and a safety issue. However, electric vessels can be recharged inductively in a fully automated manner. Fewer batteries needed, no heavy plugs and cables to handle. Wireless inductive charging is unaffected by rain or snowfall. The presentation gives an insight into the technology and its unique features, and refers to a successful project implementing an inductive charging system for an electric ferry.

New 124kWh modular battery pack for hybrid marine

Massimo Mantovani
Industry manager
Nidec ASI
ITALY
Marine batteries must be compact and highly reliable, but these characteristics are not the only key features. Achieving the best performance and enhancing reliability and longevity requires seamless integration between the battery and the control system. The BMS and the PMS must be able to interact in real time, which is why Nidec has developed a proprietary battery module for naval applications. With an innovative modular design with a power density of 124kWh per module, the assembly of large-capacity batteries is greatly simplified and the number of modules needed has been drastically reduced, offering significant space savings.

Aluminum-air batteries for marine applications

Udi Erell
Director, marine applications
Phinergy
ISRAEL
Aluminum-air technology allows an energy density that surpasses conventional battery technologies, at much lower prices. Furthermore, unlike rechargeable batteries, the Al-air battery does not lose capacity when not in use, and does not degrade over time. The aluminum anode depletes only when producing electricity, eventually saturating the electrolyte. Both are easily replaced and the electrolyte is recyclable. Phinergy has already fielded its patented aluminum-air batteries in land applications and is now adapting the technology to marine applications. A zero-emission hybrid solution is proposed by combining an aluminum-air 20ft shipping container, charging up to 10MWh to onboard batteries.

09 h 30

New energy storage system and usage of this system

Tatsuya Ono
Manager
Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd
JAPAN
Kawasaki is developing a new energy storage system that doesn't use Li-ion battery (LiB). Instead of LiB, Kawasaki is using Li-ion capacitor (LiC). This has quite different characteristics compared with LiB, so usage of this technology differs from conventional ones. A combination of LiB and LiC can also be considered. We will discuss this technology and its use in marine propulsion and powerplant.

Energy storage systems for ships.

Giordano Torri
Chief technology officer
Fincantieri SI SpA
ITALY
Energy storage systems (ESS) are penetrating the field of marine power systems, driven by improvement in performance, better efficiency, fuel saving, and containment of pollution and emissions. Two applications are discussed. First, the ESS as part of a new grid in DC for onboard electric power distribution. Second, the ESS used for retrofitting existing onboard AC grids. The paper shows the architecture and explains the benefits of these two solutions for medium/small ships such as tugs and ferries.
