The Institute of Maritime Energy Systems develops technologies for the decarbonisation of the energy systems that supply maritime applications with electricity, heating and cooling. To this end, researchers at the Institute are working on issues relating to storage, pre-treatment and conversion of alternative fuels, as well as optimising their efficient supply and use. New developments are simulated, tested in real-life conditions and made ready for certification.
- Energy Converters and Systems
- Energy Infrastructure
- System Demonstration
- Virtual Ship
The Institute of Maritime Energy Systems offers the comprehensive processing of commissions and projects funded by third parties, including:
- Research into systems and components for the storage of the energy sources that provide power for maritime applications.
- Configuring and testing appropriate energy supply systems, conducted in conjunction with users through extensive system development based on the analysis of a ship's power supply requirements.
- Comprehensive advice on energy supply for maritime applications, including the provision of power, heating and cooling in scalable solutions suitable for a wide range of vessels, from yachts to ocean liners.
- Estimating and examining developments on a digital twin for future requirements, accompanied by extensive simulations and their evaluations. The different platforms complement each other to ensure that evaluations of applications are based on a holistic understanding of the systems.
- The final testing of components and subsystems in a real environment, where any questions relating to technical certification are answered.
As part of the collaboration with partners, maritime approval for a given application is obtained.
