Eco Marine Power (EMP) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with a shipping company based in Singapore for the supply of its Aquarius management and automation (MAS)+ Solar solution.
The solar technology will allow ships to monitor fuel oil consumption in real time and automatically calculate nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. It will also enable interfacing with marine solar power systems.
The MoU outlines plans for one of the shipping company’s vessels to be equipped with the technology on an initial trial basis. The solution’s performance will then be evaluated by both companies.
EMP will also provide UB-50-12 valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries as part of the deal. - July 2017
