In the effort towards reducing Norwegian domestic shipping total emissions, Frydenbø Industri, together with partners, have developed a unique hybrid solution for smaller vessel engines.
The hybrid consists of an electric motor and a diesel engine. During the phase of development, it has been important to us to ensure that both engines are on the same shaft, to make sure that the transition between diesel and electric operation is as seamless and smooth as possible.
The hybrid power production ensures optimal utilization of energy, and provides large savings in fuel costs. Reducing the number of operating hours and maximum utilization of engine efficiency, also creates lifespan savings.
The first contract for an in-line hybrid solution was signed in 2020, with delivery planned for June 2021. The shipyard is Promek, and the customer is EWOS Innovation (Cargill).
At Frydenbø our eyes are aways open for projects and opportunities with the environment and sustainable production in mind. We are also very grateful for customers coming to us with a green mindset, which makes it possible for us to invest further in this type of development.
