Integrated energy systems designer Blueday Technology has teamed up with Swiss sustainable energy infrastructure fund manager SUSI Partners to offer installation of hybrid power systems without upfront capital expenditure.
Under the new arrangement, asset owners and operators are
offered to install hybrid energy systems with no upfront costs; instead they
will pay a monthly fee.
Up to EUR 50 million (USD 56.1 million) is available
globally for financing, the parties said.
The technology offered allows vessel owners to reduce fuel
use by up to 27 percent and achieve a 95 percent cut in emissions, according to
Blue Water Energy, the owner of Blueday Technology.
As explained, Blueday’s SMART hybrid solution optimises the
overall operational performance of ships by allowing engines to operate closer
to their ideal design point, with load fluctuations absorbed through the
“The offshore and marine industries are facing financial
pressures at a time when their emissions and carbon footprints are coming under
scrutiny,” Hans-Petter Heggebø, CEO of Blueday Technology, said.
“We know that cash pressure is one of the main barriers to
installing our systems and future-proofing assets – we’ve now solved that
problem for owners and operators through our agreement with SUSI Partners.”
The arrangement is offered to asset owners and operators in
the oil and gas, drilling rig, maritime, aquaculture and shore power sectors.
