Technology group Wärtsilä said it will engineer, supply and install complete battery hybrid packages to two offshore supply vessels (OSV) owned by Norwegian-based operator Atlantic Offshore.

The 746 kWh battery hybrid systems will be installed on the Ocean Star and Ocean Art at the Fitjar shipyard in Norway. The project is sceduled to be completed in early 2020.

The hybrid propulsion conversions will unlock improved fuel consumption and a reduced environmental impact, said Wärtsilä, who booked the order in June 2019. Wärtsilä said it will also carry out the testing and sea trials for the systems following installation.

"In addition to saving fuel and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the hybrid package will make the vessels more attractive to potential charterers," said CEO Roy Wareberg, Atlantic Offshore.

Both vessels were designed by Wärtsilä, and are fitted with Wärtsilä engines and Wärtsilä Low Loss Concept (LLC) electrical systems, which reduces electrical losses and delivers higher individual engine loads to provide better fuel efficiency.
