Rolls-Royce designed low emission Environship

By Vessels

Rolls-Royce designed a cargo ship friendly to the environment, it is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 40%.
The marine technology for this project is new, including a wave-piercing bow and an engine and all is working with liquefied natural gas.
This is the first ship of its kind known as Rolls-Royce Environship. The name of the vessel is the Eidsvaag Pioner and has been produced for Eidsvaag AS this week and will be used for delivering feed to many fish farms around the Norwegian coast. The first idea behind this kind of vessel is to save money to its owners.
Neil Gilliver, Rolls-Royce, President - Merchant, announced: "The Environship has now moved from concept to reality with the successful delivery of the first ship. We firmly believe that the only way to make significant reductions in emissions and fuel costs is to combine a range of innovative technologies into one ship. Environship does just that, by bringing together complementary technologies as part of a highly efficient propulsion system.
"We'd like to congratulate the Vard Aukra shipyard and our customer Eidsvaag on the successful completion of the first Environship, and look forward to monitoring the performance of Eidsvaag Pioner in service."
Vidar Eidsvaag, Eidsvaag AS - Operations Manager said: "We look forward to entering service with this vessel, the very first of the Environship concept. We have great expectations of both the design and equipment, and we hope and think that this vessel will enable us to meet future challenges in an even better way."
The specific technology implemented in Environship is the engine powered by LNG, the new wave-piercing hull design and the optimization of the electrical power.
