We believe that modern ships will be built on the foundation of electricity. This expands their range of viable energy sources beyond traditional fuel to for instance batteries and fuel cells. The electrical backbone, integrated with automation and control systems, will also transform the industry from merely connected operations to collaborative and automated operations.
ABB and Ballard Power Systems (Ballard) join forces in an industry-first partnership to develop high-power fuel cell concept capable of generating 3 megawatts (4,000 HP) of electrical power. Approval in Principle (AiP) received from leading classification society DNV.
As the energy sources available to the maritime industry evolve, so must the power platform enabling them. ABB’s Onboard DC Grid™ is a flexible power distribution system delivering efficiency gains to the ships of today and futureproofing them for the challenges of tomorrow.
ABB has secured a contract with Haemin Heavy Industries shipyard to provide a complete power and propulsion solution for Busan Port Authority’s first all-electric passenger ferry
ABB secures a contract with Sefine Shipyard to provide power and propulsion solution to FrøyGruppen’s state-of-the-art hybrid live fish carrier, future-proofing the vessel for safe and sustainable operations
The pressure for the maritime industry to raise its environmental game is most intense for ships in port, where emissions can have a significant impact on air quality. Increasingly, plug-in shore power is providing the answer, helping deliver the benefits of sustainability from grid to propeller.
