PROPELLING THE SHIPPING INDUSTRY TOWARDS GREATER SUSTAINABILITY

HYBRID POWER

KONGSBERG INTEGRATED HYBRID POWER PROPULSION SYSTEM
Kongsberg Maritime’s hybrid propulsion systems offer proven efficiency benefits across a range of ship types, with technology being the key to meeting the International Maritime Organisation’s carbon reduction strategy.

Energy Storage System upgrade

Hybrid mode features deliver significant fuel savings and environmental benefits

PROVEN TO DELIVER RESULTS

Hybrid propulsion systems are designed to provide ship operators with the best possible energy consumption at any time, while optimising system redundancy and safety. Typically, a Kongsberg Maritime hybrid system is proven to offer fuel efficiency gains of around 20%, with corresponding reductions in emissions.

Partnering for success

Golden Energy Offshore first to reap the benefits

“Our long cooperation with Kongsberg, hosting several pilot projects, has had a positive effect. By installing the battery system and shore-power connection then monitoring the performance, the energy consumption and environmental impact are significantly reduced.”
Per Ivar Fagervoll, CEO - Golden Energy Offshore

Kongsberg Maritime’s hybrid propulsion systems offer proven benefits across a wide range of maritime sectors.

SAVE MORE THAN JUST FUEL

Kongsberg Maritime optimises its systems to closely match your vessels’ operating profile. By moving to hybrid or electric propulsion, owners have inbuilt flexibility that reduces emissions and optimises fuel consumption. Hybrid systems are lighter, taking up less space, with lower noise and vibration levels and reduced maintenance costs.

Our innovative Hybrid Power and Test Lab allows an entire system to be tested and simulated prior to delivery and installation, saving on commissioning and troubleshooting. 

OUR FULLY FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS CAN ACCOMMODATE THE INTEGRATION OF YOUR EXISTING POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WITH FULL FUNCTIONALITY.

3RD PARTY POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM INTEGRATION?

Full functionality on how to control the energy on producers and consumers is necessary to harvest all the benefits of having a battery on-board. However, a vessel with a DP K-POS from KONGSBERG and PMS from 3rd party supplier, can achieve the same level of Energy Control functionality on Hybrid, as a vessel that has both K-POS and KM PMS with this new smart way of integration.
