Next generation short-sea ship dual-fuel engine and propulsion retrofit technologies

Project description

Symbiotic ship engine and propulsion innovations

A consortium of eight industry and academic partners is conducting a 3-year research project to develop two symbiotic ship engine and propulsion innovations. The EU-funded SeaTech project will develop an operational version of an oscillating flapping-wing propulsion device and test the energy saving device aboard short-sea vessels. The innovation will be characterised by high retrofitability and maintainability. It will also offer shipowners a return-on-investment of 400 % due to fuel and operational cost savings. The project estimates CO2 savings of 32.5 million tonnes annually if just 10 % all EU short-sea vessels are retrofitted with SeaTech. This is equal to the emissions of 200 000 passenger cars per year.
