Boskalis’ diving support vessel BOKA Atlantis recently had a set of powerful batteries installed on board.
The installation of this Energy Storage System will reduce the vessel’s fuel consumption and associated carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions by an average of up to twenty percent, according to the company.
The system also provides a power supply and energy storage facility while the BOKA Atlantis is docked and contributes to quieter and more efficient operations offshore.
The retrofit took place at along the quay of the Boskalis Service Center in Rotterdam. The BOKA Atlantis is Boskalis’ first vessel retrofitted with a 450 kWh battery pack. Currently, their diving support vessel BOKA Da Vinci is also undergoing this “green intervention” in Rotterdam, and more powerful offshore vessels will follow later this year, the company states.
