Study: Feeder Containerships Ready to Benefit from Hybrid Power Systems

June 20, 2019


Hybrid power systems often achieve significant efficiency gains and emission reductions in operation modes in which a ship’s power demand fluctuates, for example when major energy consumers, such as cranes or thrusters, are utilized. This typically happens in connection with port visits.

A review of historical AIS data showed that container feeders are a ship type meeting this requirement, and thereby are potentially a good case for hybridization, according to a new study conducted by MAN Energy Solutions, Corvus Energy, and DNV GL.
