Eco Marine Power (EMP) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with AIMS Global Engineering (AIMS) ofKuala Terengganu, Malaysia to market and develop renewable energy solutions for shipping.

Initially the companies will focus on a project to complete the detailed design of the Medaka eco-commuter ferry with the aim to start marketing this innovative solar-electric urban passenger ferry across the Asia-Pacific Region later this year. The Medakaeco-commuter ferry will incorporate a range of technologies including hybrid marine propulsion, a data management system, Lithium-ion storage modules and a solar array incorporating flexible solar panels.

Eco Marine Power and AIMS Global Engineering will also cooperate on a project to incorporate a renewable energy solution onto an existing offshore support vessel and explore the possibility of working together during the sea trials of EMP’s Aquarius MRE System and Energy Sail technologies.
