Tailored maritime solutions 

ShipEco Marine EcoSolutions provides maritime design solutions to meet the requirements of large companies, ship owners, and governments needing large volumes of clean public utilities such as:

  • Water
  • Power
  • Gas
  • Data 

These utilities are all produced from cleaner fuel sources and are particularly interesting for countries in the developing world that have significant population growth which is currently outstripping the speed at which onshore infrastructure can be built.

EcoSolutions repurpose ships as the means to convert clean fuel sources into much needed public utilities by creating ‘fast to market’ floating infrastructure which reduces lengthy planning processes, can be built offsite in shipyards and floated into position before final commissioning on site. Financing difficulties can also be offset as these re-purposed ships could be financed with international finance resources and the possibility of MIGA (Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency) guarantees that remove expropriation, war and political risks to investors. (Political risk is one of the main reasons why public infrastructure projects are not built in developing countries).

‘Off-the-shelf’ power, water, gas and data projects in the form of EcoShips have been developed by ShipEco Marine team of experts through the feasibility stage up to the ‘basic design’ stage of completion. EcoShips can be modified as tailored EcoSolutions for the client dependant on their requirements.  

Each generic design concept is based around the availability of a cleaner fuel supply and the geographical location criteria are specific to each solution. This, together with an analysis of client requirements and desired product volumes, will drive decisions on locating the vessel 'inshore' or 'offshore' and many other design issues. Other factors such as planning and political regulations will have a secondary impact due to the temporary nature of a ship and its mobility. Bespoke solutions are then derived from the already existing basic EcoShip designs.

 

Following a normal due diligence client review, the company will undertake to deliver your bespoke/tailored solution following the stage gates of:


1) Developing a solution for your requirements by:
  a) Identifying the cleanest fuel source available in the area,
  b) Understand the public utility that is needed and quantity
  c) Surveying the location for mooring ‘offshore’ or ‘inshore’
2) Designing a "Project" for a modified "EcoShip" to suit your requirements
3) Financing of the EcoSolution if so required by the client

For Ship Owners who have distressed assets due to market circumstances, ShipEco Marine can provide a cleaner EcoSolution that enables an alternative cash flow stream for an otherwise redundant asset. 

A site survey will take account of local infrastructure, re-use and markets for waste products like heat and cold. ShipEco Marine will then provide an optimised design including size of vessel, type of vessel, modification and conversion requirements.  

ShipEco Marine can also manage the EcoSolution through the entire design and build phases. Each of these ‘off-the-shelf’ designs constitutes intellectual property that can be adapted and used for energy optimised for any specific ‘inshore’ or ‘offshore’ location. EcoSolutions can be located in any geographic sea-based location for the production of the client’s public utility requirements.  

EcoSolutions are:

  • Economic as they are commercially viable solutions capable of attracting green subsidies,
  • Ecological as they work with nature, promoting sustainability and reducing carbon dioxide release, and
  • Economizing as these vessels reduce waste and increase efficiency.
EcoShips will allow you to:
  1. Exploit waste fuel sources (e.g. household waste which is being land filled),
  2. Conserve valuable fuel resources such as natural gas enhancing energy security,
  3. Re-use existing under utilised assets like redundant pipelines and under-utilised offshore transmission infrastructure,
  4. Dramatically improve the utilisation of that infrastructure.
