Deployment of patented rigid sail and solar power system
Electric Vehicle Energy Harvesting/Regeneration 20

Eco Marine Power (EMP) has begun preparing for sea trials of its Aquarius
Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) solution in co-operation with strategic
partners and ship owner Hisafuku Kisen K.K. of Onomichi, Japan. This
preparatory work will lead to the world's first installation of an
integrated rigid sail and solar power system for ships using EMP's patented
technologies including the EnergySail. This is a major step forward towards
a more sustainable future for shipping and is expected to result in the
wider deployment of EMP's solutions on ships ranging from coastal cargo
vessels to bulk ore carriers and cruise ships.
 
Currently underway is a feasibility study involving several large bulk
carriers including the Belgrano, Nord Gemini and Bulk Chile. For each ship
an estimate of the propulsive power that could be provided by an EnergySail
array will be prepared according to the routes they operate on. In addition
the total amount of solar power that could be installed on each vessel will
be determined. On-board testing & data collection will be undertaken as
required.
 
After the feasibility study is completed one ship will be selected for the
sea trials phase. During this phase a trial configuration that will
incorporate all the elements of Aquarius MRE will be installed and evaluated
during a period of approximately 12 to 18 months.

A number of strategic partners are involved in the Aquarius MRE Project
including KEI System Co. Ltd., The Furukawa Battery Company and Teramoto
Iron Works Co. Ltd. EMP is also in discussions with several companies
including potential investors, about their possible involvement in the
project. Furthermore EMP is interested in hearing from other companies that
may wish to be involved during the sea trials phase of the project.
 
Aquarius MRE is an advanced integrated system of rigid sails, marine-grade
solar panels, energy storage modules and marine computers that will enable
ships to tap into renewable energy by harnessing the power provided by the
wind and sun. The use of these alternative sources of power and propulsion
will reduce fuel consumption, lower air pollution and cut CO2 emissions. The
rigid sails used by Aquarius MRE are based on EMP's EnergySail technology.
These renewable energy devices can even be used when a ship is at anchor or
in harbour. Each EnergySail can be configured with a mix of sensors,
photovoltaic panels or other power generation devices ...
 
The production of each EnergySail to be used during the sea trials will be
undertaken at the workshops of Teramoto Iron Works in Onomichi, Japan. This
company was also involved in the production of rigid sails in the 1980's and
has extensive experience regarding the manufacturing of high quality marine
fittings for ships ...
