Mechanical ventilation onboard a ship can become a significant electrical consumer, mainly in those types of ships where, in addition to EnginecRoom, there are specific and highly demanding ventilation needs in cargo holds, cargo decks, passenger areas, … This is a typical situation in ships like Cruises, ferrries, Car Carriers, Livestock Carriers, Reefer Container Carriers, among other shiptypes.
The energy challenge affects many areas, like:
- Energy consumption by the ventilation system and its cost.
- Sizing of the Electric Generating Sets
- Higher emissions (NOx, CO2, SOx, ….
In order to mitigate all these issues, Zitron has developed the EffiPluz product line, with an aerodynamic design and a very high efficiency, reaching up to 87% (tested). This allows for absorbed power reductions that can amount to a 25%. It also improves the electrical balance, with a demand for lower installed power and also reduces the emissions to the environment. These are all factors that imply savings in the ship operation
