Offshore Charge Points

20 Jun Offshore Charge Points

Idea Owner: Noë Eenkhoorn

How great it would be if we could use the renewable energy generated offshore directly on vessels sailing by these energy sources?

The idea is to develop Offshore Charge Points and/or Harbor Charge Points to use renewable energy for power supply to vessels. Next to that we would like to develop a hybrid upgrade for vessels, such that they could easily make use of these charge points.

The advantages of this idea are:

  • Use of renewable energy
  • Less offshore transportation distance between source and user
  • Reducing CO2 and NOX emissions
  • Better air quality in harbors / coastal cities
  • Cost reduction on fuel
  • Reduction on energy losses because of the inefficiency of diesel engines
