MICROGRID IN A BOX
As the maritime industry searches for the means to meet ever tightening emissions regulations, battery power sits at the center of future paths to decarbonization. Sterling PBES’ new contain- erized energy storage solution (ESS) is designed to deliver a simpler electri? cation solution. The self-contained CanPower ESS is an all-encom- passing ‘Microgrid in a Box’ that promises to add energy storage to virtually any vessel, with- out the need for complex design and build times.
MOORING MORE EFFICIENTLY
The next generation MoorMaster NxG auto- mated vacuum mooring solution from Cavotec is designed to reduce fuel consumption and in- crease port productivity by simplifying and ac- celerating the mooring process, enabling ships to dock in as little as 30 seconds.
Raytheon Anschütz introduced a new
Docking Display as an optional feature for the Conning NX navigational ship soft- ware that provides navigators an overview of ship data at a glance and a chart win- dow to facilitate docking. It is designed using Conning NX “widgets”, which can be adapted and combined as needed. The result is better situational awareness of the ship, its condition and in? uencing param- eters during the docking maneuver.
