ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has systems onboard three out of the four ships shortlisted for Nor-Shipping’s prestigious Energy Efficiency Award.

Nor-Shipping is a leading maritime event that takes place every second year in Oslo, Norway. The Energy Efficiency Award will be presented to the ship considered to have made the greatest contribution towards energy efficiency. The three nominees with ABB systems onboard are:

Viking Grace, the world first LNG-fuelled large passenger ship, owned by Viking Line, who chose ABB to supply the complete electrical power plant and propulsion system together with energy management system -- EMMA, which is a part of ABB’s advisory suite within its vessel information and control solutions (VICO). EMMA helps to manage energy-related processes, practices and decisions on the new ferry to use fuel more efficiently during operation.

CMA CGM’s Marco Polo, the largest container carrier on the oceans, has ABB’s advisory system OCTOPUS onboard for motion forecast and monitoring and heavy weather decision support. OCTOPUS analyses wave measurements, weather forecasts, navigation data and the voyage plan, taking ship characteristics, loading conditions and motion sensor measurements into account to advise crew on

The third vessel, Myklebusthaug Management’s Dina Star is the first ship to feature ABB’s full Onboard DC grid system, integrating all power, propulsion, automation and advisory systems. With Onboard DC grid, ABB has created one of the most flexible marine power and propulsion systems ever brought to market. The system offers up to 20% fuel savings over conventional plants, significant potential space savings and improved dynamic response. Over the coming months, ABB will offer field data verifying reductions in emissions and fuel consumption using its energy management system EMMA, which is also installed on Dina Star.

“ABB is proud to be one of the key suppliers contributing to the energy efficiency on three of the vessels nominated for this coveted award,” says Heikki Soljama, head of ABB Marine and Cranes business unit. “This underlines ABB’s leading position in providing innovative and energy efficient solutions in the maritime industry. We are very happy to see that ABB’s constant efforts in providing more efficient, smarter and environmental-friendly solutions are recognized by our customers and the industry. Energy efficiency has always been one of our key business drivers, and customers benefit by partnering with one experienced supplier offering integrated power and automation, and energy management. ABB will help the vessels regulate fuel and power consumption, and provide detailed operational information for all onboard systems to maximize their performance, efficiency and passenger safety and comfort.”
At Nor-Shipping, ABB will highlight its full range of marine solutions in hall E, booth E01-E12. These solutions include integrated automation and power & propulsion systems.

ABB (abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 145,000 people.
