Have you ever heard about the ambitious targets of emissions cuts in maritime sector imposed by IMO and the EU’s Green Deal? Have you ever wondered what will in the future replace heavy fuel oil (HFO) as an energy source for large ships? Do you know what the 21st century propulsion system of a cruise ship should look like?
Berend van Veldhuizen from Delft University of Technology (TUD) will present the NAUTILUS project under the Fuel Cells section at the 7th World Maritime Technology Conference 2022 (26th – 28th April 2022) in Denmark.
Holistic simulation models running in parallel to a battery system as so-called digital twins have drawn increasing interest of researchers in recent years, especially for large-scale and investment-intensive automotive, marine or stationary systems.
Cem Ünlübayir from RWTH (Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen) will present at Advanced Battery Power Conference (28th -30th March 2022) an energy management concept with a load-prediction engine that aims to improve the fuel economy of a hybrid maritime propulsion system.
