Carbon Trust: Contest to spur Emission Reduction Tech

Posted by Michelle Howard

The Carbon Trust's Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) launched a competition to accelerate the development of technologies with the potential to reduce vessel emissions and fuel consumption.

Up to $127,000 in funding will be awarded to the winning technologies, from a total funding pot of $381,000, to support technology development or demonstration.

The OWA Low Emission Vessels competition will focus on innovations for Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs). Designs submitted to the competition will be assessed for overall cost, operations, and safety advantages to ensure they are viable solutions for offshore wind operations. Vessel designs, power and propulsion technologies as well as energy-providing systems will be considered within the scope of the competition.

The competition is being run in parallel with an OWA commissioned study to evaluate potential technologies for reducing emissions and fuel consumption that are suitable for, or show potential to be used, in offshore wind vessels safely. The study aims to:
• Reduce vessel emissions, fuel costs and vessels' operational maintenance costs for offshore wind operations
• Understand and evaluate the cost/benefit of existing and future powering and storage technologies, particularly from other industries
• Determine the infrastructure required for integrating this new technology into offshore wind operations.
