Shipping is already an eco-friendly means of transport. But environmental protection measures and rising fuel costs puts additional pressure on the shipping companies. Under the motto “Green Shipping”, the maritime industry takes a great step towards reducing CO2 emissions and pollution from ships.
Wärtsilä SAM Electronics develops innovative state-of-the-art technologies intended to reduce emissions and running costs from shipping. Our SAMCon high voltage onshore power connection provides the option of shoreside emission-free electrical power for vessels while their main and auxiliary engines are disconnected. Also our shaft alternators are becoming more and more popular. They stand for economic and environmentally-friendly solutions for electrical power on ships at sea.
