PROPULSION AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT
Leading-edge diesel / electric propulsion and energy generation / management technologies are deployed to optimise energy efficiency and minimise environmental impact. Propulsion is via twin propellers, capable of generating energy under sail as well as drawing upon it under motor. Ship’s energy demands are met by load-following generators and advanced battery bank reserves, all managed through a Smart energy management system optimising fuel efficiency while reliably meeting diverse loads from sailing and hotel systems. Stored energy is capable of meeting hotel services in Silent Mode overnight, substantially mitigating noise and exhaust pollution in pristine anchorages. The battery banks can also hoist sails for a silent departure.
