Retrofitting to Make Hybrid OSVs

Maritime company CSM Energy and technical consultant Hydrus Engineering will cooperate on making ships that service the offshore wind sector greener and more eco-friendly.

They will assess and retrofit offshore support vessels (OSVs) involved in offshore installations and operations, turning them into hybrid ships powered by battery and fuel.

The upgraded vessels will use significantly less fuel, reducing emissions and cutting maintenance costs for the diesel generators that power the ships.

Retrofitting existing vessels will be far quicker and much more cost-effective than building greener OSVs from scratch, according to a joint CSM and Hydrus Engineering statement on the expected demand for greener ships in the offshore sector.
