FUELSAVE’S MARINE+ technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 15%, cutting emissions and fuel costs in the maritime industry.

MARINE+ improves the combustion efficiency of vessels’ engines by injecting a hydrogen-based gas, generated onboard, and methanol into the engine. This gas mix has a higher energy potential resulting in an earlier ignition and more complete, efficient burning of the fuel. At the same time, the operating temperature of the heat bearing parts of the process is decreased with a water methanol injection. The process is monitored by an intelligent control system, functioning on its own without human intervention.

This method cuts fuel consumption by up to 15%, CO2 emissions by 10-15%, and harmful nitrogen oxides by up to 80%. It also reduces maintenance and repair costs as it reduces the engine’s wear and tear. It is the world’s first technology of its kind to be approved by industry assurance body DNV GL.

MARINE+ can be retrofitted to either existing or new ships and provides a guaranteed return on investment within the warranty time. To further maximise the return on investment, the equipment can be transferred from one ship onto another, but MARINE+ can be installed on almost any type of ship including container ships, cruise ships, heavy load carriers, and commercial operated vessels.

Why you should care

Maritime transport is responsible for about 2.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, but shipping emissions are predicted to increase by 50-250% by 2050. Without taking the necessary actions, the shipping industry could become responsible for 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2050. FUELSAVE’s solution can be retrofitted to reduce emissions from existing ships to help address this challenge.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

FUELSAVE’s MARINE+ cuts fuel usage by up to 15%, improving the efficiency of the current shipping industry through innovation of existing infrastructure.
