NEMOSHIP ambitions to contribute to the European Partnership “Zero Emission Waterborne Transport (ZEWT)” objectives by providing new deployable technological solutions needed for all main types of waterborne transport to reach a “net zero emission” by 2050. To reach this goal, NEMOSHIP will:
- a modular and standardised battery energy storage solution enabling to exploit heterogeneous storage units and
- a cloud-based digital platform enabling a data-driven optimal and safe exploitation,
- demonstrate these innovations at TRL 7 maturity for hybrid ships and their adaptability for full-electric ships thanks to:
- a retrofitted hybrid Offshore Service Vessel (diesel/electric propulsion),
- a newly designed hybrid cruise vessel (LNG/electric propulsion) and
- a semi-virtual demonstration for two additional full-electric vessels such as ferries and short-sea shipping.
All results will be built upon a treasure chest of 18 years of ESS operation data. Thanks a very ambitious exploitation plan, accompanied by very large dissemination actions, the NEMOSHIP consortium estimates that these innovations will reach the following impacts by 2030:
- electrification of about 7% of the EU fleet;
- generate a potential revenue of €300M thanks to the sales of the NEMOSHIP products and services;
- reduce EU maritime GHG emissions by 30% compared to business as usual (BAU) scenario; and
- create at least 260 direct jobs (over 1000 indirect).
The NEMOSHIP consortium is composed of 11 partners (3 RTO, 1 SME, 7 large companies) and covers the whole value chain, from research-oriented partners and dissemination and exploitation specialists to software developers, energy system designers, integration partners, naval architects and end-users.
