Ortze Vessel

The solution proposed presents technological innovations which outperform current trends and solutions that will be required in the near future.

One of the functional features of the solution includes the ability to sail in pure electric mode with zero emissions (combustion generation unit completely off) for at least two hours at medium-low speed (entries into / exits from port, operation in protected environments, as well as precise, silent operations at low speed).

Built-in Power System

THE TECHNOLOGIES AND SYSTEMS INVOLVED IN THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT WILL BE BASED ON A BUILT-IN POWER SYSTEM WITH THE FOLLOWING TEN ESSENTIAL CHARACTERISTICS:

01

ELECTRIC PROPULSION USING A HIGHLY ENERGY-EFFICIENT, SILENT DIRECT DRIVE ELECTRIC MOTOR

02

ELECTRICAL ENERGY GENERATION AT VARIABLE FREQUENCY USING INTERNAL COMBUSTION GENERATION UNIT

03

ELECTRICAL ENERGY GENERATION USING PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM

04

HYBRIDISATION USING HIGH-CAPACITY ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM

05

POWER DISTRIBUTION USING DC DISTRIBUTION GRID

06

CONVERSION AND ADAPTATION OF POWER AND DRIVE USING HIGHLY-EFFICIENT POWER ELECTRONICS CONVERTERS

07

MANAGED USING AN “ELECTRONIC BRAIN”, OPTIMISING THE POWER AND ENERGY GENERATED, STORED AND CONSUMED

08

MAINTAINED AND SUPERVISED REMOTELY INCLUDING ADVANCED MONITORING AND PREVENTIVE AND PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE SYSTEMS

09

WITH HIGH LEVEL OF REDUNDANCY AND SAFETY ON BOARD

10

REASONABLE STARTUP COST AND MINIMAL OPERATIONAL COSTS
