The introduction of Wärtsilä Hybrid and its integration with a conventional diesel or dual-fuel engine generating sets, offers significant efficiency improvement by running the engines on optimal load and absorbing many of the load fluctuations through batteries. The system is designed and integrated to optimise the overall operation of the vessel.
The power and energy capacity of the battery should be suitable to allow the engine to run for most of the time on optimal loads. A key element is hybrid control algorithms for load sharing between units and efficient power and energy management.
The Wärtsilä hybrid/battery system is suitable for application in a variety of market segments, including offshore vessels, tugs, ferries and coastal vessels, for new building as well as for retrofits of existing installations.
We share a passion to do right for our customers and the environment. As a leader in our fields, we provide decision making support for yards, owners and operators.”
The Wärtsilä hybrid system is designed and integrated to optimise the overall operation of the vessel. The system ensures fuel savings and reduced maintenance costs, in addition to substantial reductions in emissions.”
