Robust automation, control and management system for marine renewable energy solutions.



Eco Marine Power (EMP) and KEI System Ltd (KEI) of Osaka, Japan, announced today that they will release later this year, the Aquarius Monitoring and Automation System or Aquarius MAS – a marine computer system capable of monitoring and/or controlling equipment on ships including wind and solar power devices plus being able to monitor fuel consumption.



The Aquarius MAS is based upon the reliable KEI 3240 Data Logger platform, a marine computer system which is already in use on vessels such as tug boats, training ships and bulk ore carriers. The KEI 3240 Data Logger is able to monitor the performance of on-board equipment and systems plus record data for later analysis. It can also be configured to control equipment and automate processes to turn on/off equipment.
 


The Aquarius MAS will build upon this legacy and also incorporate new features. For example the amount of energy provided by marine solar and/or wind power systems can be monitored against fuel consumption to verify savings. This information can also be recorded and later analysed along with a wide range of other performance data in order to fine-tune the operational performance of the ship or vessel the system is fitted to.



The combination of marine renewable energy solutions plus the optimization of energy use will result in considerable fuel savings, lower noxious gas emissions and a reduced carbon footprint for ships and shipping companies.
 


It is planned to install the first Aquarius Monitoring and Automation System in cooperation with AIMS Global Engineering of Malaysia after which the system will be marketed globally.  



The Aquarius MAS will also be incorporated into the Aquarius Eco Ship concept being developed by EMP and into the designs of the Tonbo Hybrid Ferry and Medaka Eco Commuter Ferry.
