Nautical Integrated Hybrid Energy System for Long-haul Cruise Ships

Project description

Sustainable long-haul passenger ships

Maritime transport, including long-haul passenger ships, emits greenhouse gases and pollutants. To reduce these emissions and comply with the International Maritime Organisation's targets for 2030 and beyond, the EU-funded Nautilus project will develop an integrated marine energy system that will use liquefied natural gas. The project will build a pilot technology that will gradually replace the internal combustion engine-based generators with a solid oxide fuel cell-battery hybrid genset. What is more, Nautilus will work on a digital design and a demonstrator of an on-board energy system for vessels transporting 1 000 and more than 5 000 passengers, which will be evaluated according to the marine safety regulations.
