GAS ENGINE

 

The sail system is integrated with a Rolls-Royce gas spark ignition engine.

ADVANTAGES OF GAS ENGINES
  • Operating in 26 vessels to date
  • Developed to use LNG, a significant transitional fossil fuel for the shipping industry. LNG is cleaner, emitting no sulphur and reducing nitrous oxide by 90% and CO2 by 23%. Emission control areas in Scandinavia, EU, US and emerging economies stimulate the emergence of bunkering supply infrastructure across EU and beyond. http://shipandbunker.com/news/emea/761399-ec-calls-for-lng-bunkering-across-europe
 
  • Delivers propulsive force to B9 Ships for
       
    • manouvering in port
    • in event of insufficient wind
    • to facilitate motor-sailing - which may yet be the most efficient operational mode (more testing required) as the B9 Ship hull design is so efficient, a small amount of ‘push’ allows the sail to kick in and optimise free wind

 

 
POWERED BY WASTE

 

In the case of B9 Ships the engine is fuelled by food waste
 

 

ADVANTAGES OF 2nd GENERATION BIO-FUEL

 

  • Development of facilities for cost-effective production of liquid bio-methane (LBM or green-gas) is well underway by sister company B9 Organic Energy, and others including Big 6 energy generators
  • LBM has the exact same chemical and physical make-up as LNG and is interchageable once cleaned
  • LBM injected directly in to LNG grid through a virtual biomethane supply chain

LBM Infrastructure

  • A certification process will ensure LBM injected in to grid matches that taken out to operate ships.
  • Enables B9 Ships to authenticate 100% renewable fuel status highly valuable when financial incentives are introduced to stimulate ‘green’ shipping
  • LBM is 2nd generation bio-fuel so it avoids contentious food v fuel controversy
  • 2nd generation bio-fuels attract x2 Renewable Obligation certificates and Renewable Transport Fuel Certificates
