Grafmarine is collaborating with Carisbrooke Shipping Ltd to test its NanoDeck AI Solar tile management solution.
As stated by the company, NanoDeck is a clean and sustainable alternative renewable source of energy that can be attached to any flat surface – in this case, a cargo vessel – to capture, store, and remotely manage clean energy generation via AI solar technology.
Solar energy is uprising in the shipping industry as many ports (Oakland, Valencia, Long Beach, Corpus Christi etc) and have recently adopted solar panel use as an eco-friendly solution.
It can be fitted to both new and existing vessels, helping the industry on its journey to decarbonise and meet future legislation, whilst further assisting in the global development of smart low-carbon ports.
…said Martin Leigh, Grafmarine Director and Founder.
The system offers unique and innovative ‘plug and play’ technology which enables it to be installed quickly at low cost and upgraded in line with technological advances without the need for a large investment, making this a future-proof solution
…said Commercial Director Nigel Marc Roberts
During the round voyage from Scotland to West Africa the NanoDeck has sent live data, enabling Grafmarine to make further improvements and efficiency gains whilst understanding how the equipment will withstand the rigours of the marine environment.
We are pleased to assist Grafmarine by offering them a test platform where their new NanoDeck solution can collect data during real voyages in different latitudes under varied weather conditions.
…said Capt. Simon Merritt, Sr. Technical Fleet Manager, Carisbrooke Shipping Ltd
