Aluminium Marine Consultants Unveils CTV Hybrid Design

Aluminium Marine Consultants (AMC) has launched a new 24m True Hybrid Wind Farm Crew Transfer Design.

Six months ago, AMC sought to take a step back and look closely at the feasibility of producing a vessel that would combine the durability of the existing aluminium crew transfer catamaran and the advances in hybrid power, not just related to marine, but to look beyond into automotive technology.

The systems incorporated within the design are all available and proven, they have been brought together in one design, AMC said.

The hybrid system selected will be a serial hybrid/diesel-electric installation. The powertrain supplier will, in the next few years be able to offer a Hydrogen power unit, so the engines can be replaced or modified accordingly when the power units become available.

The design brief was to deliver a vessel with all the features of a CTV, but delivering fuel savings of over 30%. Importantly the vessel can operate on its battery power for up to six hours per day, during which it achieves zero emissions. The fuel savings alone exceed the design brief, AMC said.

The powertrain that has been developed and selected, has the capability to be used on a range of vessels from 23m to 40m.
