OVERVIEW
Due to power distribution challenges, builders of next-generation ships need to find new innovative solutions to manage the power on board in the best way possible.
Clients in the shipping industry.
ABB’s all-in-one protection and control solution does this by embedding all the software and intelligence inside a smart circuit breaker known as the Emax 2 low-voltage circuit breaker that is designed for marine applications.
M2M
Cutting Edge (technology has been on the market for < 2 years)
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
The solution will help ships attain better energy efficiency and work towards achieving the International Marine Organization's goal to reduce CO2 emissions by 5 times in 30 years.
The Emax 2 will also help ships achieve continuous operation that can potentially save them on average up to 12 million dollars a year. This is achieved by employing a unique “digital zone selectivity” function that correctly identifies the fault zone faster and cuts its power supply earlier.
The solution will also allow for power profile optimization thanks to intelligent peak shaving and load shifting capabilities.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
Switchgear optimization will reduce weight and space requirements by up to 25% which is crucial in the ship building industry.
