Designing, integrating and implementing vessel retrofit projects

Owners and operators are evaluating what to do with the fleet of existing midlife vessels and one option is to retrofit. Retrofitting ESS onboard such a vessel could have a positive impact on the overall operational cost of the vessel in terms of reduced emissions, reduced running hours, increased fuel efficiency and lower maintenance costs. It could also allow the vessel to be powered by the shore grid, and in some cases short zero-emission runs can be achieved. This presentation will explore the scope, supply and considerations in designing, integrating and implementing a retrofit project. Different vessel types have diverse needs, and the presentation will touch upon how to use these various applications, and how they will integrate with the existing systems already installed on board and with the shore power systems.
