Grafmarine’s energy deck will challenge the reliance on fossil fuels in propulsion and power by providing an alternative integrated source of renewable energy.
MainGrafmarine have developed a unique energy creation and storage system using novel technologies. We are taking the final steps towards commercialisation with live ‘on-vessel’ testing and then on to commercialisation in 2021. We have recently digitally tested our product through a senior naval engineer to prove a 10% saving on heavy marine fuel use - which equates to around 10 tonnes of heavy marine fuel per day for an oil tanker. We are also developing energy storage technology well beyond what is commercially available now with Manchester Graphene. We have worked with 5 UK Catapult centres and several Welsh Universities and a number of Welsh commercial partners.
