DeepOcean to reduce emissions with battery hybrid system for MPSV
Author: World Oil Staff
DeepOcean is charing the Stril Server from Stavanger-based shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping, who will upgrade the vessel to include battery power notation in the first quar of 2024. Simon Møkster Shipping will install a 620 kWh battery system from SEAM AS, which is a supplier of zero-emission solutions to the maritime industry. Stril Server’s control and DP systems will also be upgraded, and a system for onshore charging will be installed. The upgrade will be conducted in the first quar of 2024. The vessel is currently on a two-year time char agreement with DeepOcean. She supports the company’s offering within subsea inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR), light construction and recycling services to operators in the offshore renewables and oil and gas industries. “We have set a target to reduce our CO2 emissions by 45 percent by 2030. Reducing fuel consumption and emissions from vessels that we char is an important part of reaching this goal. It is also a deciding factor when choosing which shipowners we wish to hire vessels from. We are very pleased that Simon Møkster Shipping has an equally ambitious strategy for the reduction of carbon emissions,” says Øyvind Mikaelsen, CEO of DeepOcean.
