The project entails installing a Wärtsilä 32 Methanol engine on the EBDG designed floating CHAMP barge. CHAMP will be designed to function in ports across the United States.

Technology group Wärtsilä has entered into a collaboration agreement with Seattle, USA based naval architecture and marine engineering firm, Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG), to further develop EBDG’s Clean Harbor Alternative Mobile Power (CHAMP) Barge design.

Cost effective solution

Featuring Wärtsilä’s methanol engine technology, the collaboration introduces a cost-effective solution to reduce emissions from large vessels in situations where conventional shore power is limited or not available.

The floating mobile power platform has been designed to function in ports across the United States in accordance with the specific zero-emission plans and requirements established by local authorities and regulations.

Utilising wartsila 32

When delivered, CHAMP will utilise methanol-fuelled power generated by the Wärtsilä 32 Methanol engine. This engine helps reduce emissions, thus meeting the decarbonisation requirements of most ports. The engine will be complemented by Wärtsilä’s complete methanol fuel handling system, Wärtsilä MethanolPac, as well as its emission after-treatment system, Wärtsilä NOx Reducer.

CHAMP will provide a power range from 6 to 16 MW, using green methanol as its source. It will address the need to reduce port emissions by enabling cold ironing for vessels, whether they are docked or anchored, for two weeks or longer before refuelling becomes necessary.

  1. I spent over three hours reading the internet today, and I haven’t come across any more compelling articles than yours. I think it’s more than worth it. I believe that the internet would be much more helpful than it is now if all bloggers and website proprietors produced stuff as excellent as you did.
