An idea of a bow-mounted wing which captures wave energy and dampens the ship’s motion.
Wärtsilä and six other industry and academic partners have been awarded EU funding for a major project aimed at reducing fuel consumption and lowering emission levels for the shipping industry.
The SeaTech project consortium has been formed to develop two symbiotic ship engine and propulsion innovations that, combined, could lead to a 30 percent reduction in fuel consumption.
The proposed engine power generation innovation is built around achieving ultra-high energy conversion efficiency. It involves precise control of the engine to achieve radical reductions in exhaust emission levels.
