During August, the dual-fuel vessel was equipped with Vard Electro’s SeaQ Energy Storage System and SeaQ Shore Connection.
According to Vard, these measures will reduce fuel consumption and emissions for all the vessel’s operating modes, while also enhancing redundancy.
Vard Electro’s scope covered engineering, steel pre-fabrication, installation, integration, testing, and commissioning. Planning and installation were performed in co-operation with Simon Møkster Shipping, allowing installation to be completed without off-hire days for the vessel.
The Stril Barents will now receive the class notation “Battery Power” from DNV GL.
