The renovated NordnesGruppen trawler Nordbas will feature an integrated power system that will allow the ship to go diesel free for hours and run on renewable electricity.

The new hybrid power system is being designed by Blueday Technology. Blueday’s team have worked with NordnesGruppen to design a bespoke, hybrid energy system for Nordbas, which will be refitted at Kleven shipyard in Norway.

When deciding to rebuild Nordnes, NordnesGruppen decided to focus on reducing the environmental footprint of the renovated trawler and asked several companies to put forward proposals.

Blueday’s design covers the ship’s automation and power system and uses the power generated by the Danish seine system’s winches to regenerate the onboard energy storage system, or battery.

The innovative system will mean that Nordbas could run on 100 percent renewable electricity for up to several hours.
