Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine has won an order to deliver battery-powered energy systems for two offshore platform supply vessels (PSVs) in Norway.
The delivery for Golden Energy Offshore includes the SAVe Energy system, which was launched by the company earlier this month and is used to deliver top-up power for diesel or hybrid ships but could be deployed for all-electric fleets eventually.
The two vessels, Orla and Frayja, will receive an upgrade of its existing ship design engineering package, along with its energy monitoring system that provides a complete overview of energy usage onboard.
Golden Energy Offshore aims to achieve environmentally friendly and cost effective operations for all its vessels and is among a few offshore ship operators globally that are fully ISO 50001 certified, which involves having a framework for measurement, registration, reporting and auditing of energy efficiency.
CEO Per Ivar Fagervoll said: “We started off by integrating sustainability into business processes and systems years ago and it has developed into a continuous journey of success with regards to energy efficiency, operational excellence and sustainability.”
