It can be intelligently switched to a greener power mode according to the sailing state during voyage, for lower energy consumption and higher efficiency. In addition, the vessel is also installed with a large capacity oil sewage collection device, equipped with the ship's sewage ashore treatment system, to achieve zero discharge of domestic sewage and oil sewage.
The energy consumption of the hybrid vessel is 20% lower than that of the diesel, and the carbon dioxide emission is 30% lower than that of the ordinary ship.
