Aquarius Marine Solar Power Gets Class Approval

Aquarius Marine Solar Power Gets Class Approval

Eco Marine Power (EMP) has received acceptance from Japan’s classification society ClassNK for its Aquarius Marine Solar Power solution as installed on classed vessels.

Eco Marine Power will now move forward and release two marine solar power packages: Aquarius Marine Solar Power and Aquarius MAS + Solar – with the latter including additional hardware and software that allows the system to perform functions such as fuel oil consumption monitoring.

These marine solar power systems from EMP include a marine computer system with LCD monitor, marine-grade solar power panels, battery charge controllers, energy storage, data communication devices and interface/control units.

Power from an Aquarius Marine Solar Power solution can be used for DC or AC loads (via an inverter) and can also be used to provide a source of back-up power which can be recharged via the marine solar panel array.

Greg Atkinson, Chief Technology Officer of EMP, said: “The acceptance by ClassNK of our standard marine solar power system is a major step forward towards bringing type-approved renewable energy solutions to the shipping, marine and offshore industries. It is also becoming clear that solar power has an important role to play on ships in terms of reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions.”
