Ship of the Year 2020
The live fish carrier "Ro Vision" has been awarded the "Ship of the Year 2020" award - the industry's most prestigious award for Norwegian ship technology and innovation.
"Ro Vision" is the world first plug-in hybrid live fish carrier. Siemens Energy Norway supplied an electric propulsion system with integrated Siemens BlueVault energy storage of 600 kWh. This storage system enabled the removal of one out of usually four diesel generators. The ship is charged onshore with clean energy from BlueVault of approximately 0.5 million kWh per year. These functionalities result in a 27% reduction in diesel consumption and emissions.
