ABB, a power and automation technology group, ponted out that it has systems onboard three out of the four ships shortlisted for Nor-Shipping’s prestigious Energy Efficiency Award.

The Energy Efficiency Award will be presented to the ship considered to have made the greatest contribution towards energy efficiency.

The three nominees with ABB systems onboard are:

Viking Grace, the world first LNG-fuelled large passenger ship, owned by Viking Line, who chose ABB to supply the complete electrical power plant and propulsion system together with energy management system -- EMMA, which is a part of ABB’s advisory suite within its vessel information and control solutions (VICO). EMMA helps to manage energy-related processes, practices and decisions on the new ferry to use fuel more efficiently during operation.

CMA CGM’s Marco Polo, the largest container carrier on the oceans, has ABB’s advisory system OCTOPUS onboard for motion forecast and monitoring and heavy weather decision support. OCTOPUS analyses wave measurements, weather forecasts, navigation data and the voyage plan, taking ship characteristics, loading conditions and motion sensor measurements into account to advise crew on optimal route planning, speed and fuel consumption in all weather conditions.

The third vessel, Myklebusthaug Management’s Dina Star is the first ship to feature ABB’s full Onboard DC grid system, integrating all power, propulsion, automation and advisory systems. With Onboard DC grid, ABB has created one of the most flexible marine power and propulsion systems ever brought to market. The system offers up to 20% fuel savings over conventional plants, significant potential space savings and improved dynamic response. Over the coming months, ABB will offer field data verifying reductions in emissions and fuel consumption using its energy management system EMMA, which is also installed on Dina Star.

At Nor-Shipping, ABB will highlight its full range of marine solutions, including integrated automation and power and propulsion systems.
