Significant savings with automated power management system and hybrid energy storage
Without the know-how required, crews will not be able to take full advantage of the features offered by advanced systems such as the upgraded Delomatic 4, and they will not be able to reap the financial and environmental benefits the system can deliver. When DEIF delivered, installed, and commissioned the Delomatic 4 upgrade, training of key crew members was therefore a very important part of the package.
“Even though we have only used the battery hybrid solution for a short while, we estimate that we will be able to save 12-13% on fuel consumption, corresponding to more than 3,000 ton CO2-e every year. Furthermore, we expect to reduce genset operating hours by approx. 35%”

Equally importantly, the people who use the system every day are satisfied. “The crew is happy with the solution. As they become familiar and gain confidence in the upgraded system, operational savings will improve even more,” says Alf Magne Simonsen. He is happy with the way the project was carried out, and with the expertise of the DEIF team delivering the upgrade.
“It has been a pleasure working with DEIF, and we now have a well-functioning solution for a complex installation thanks also to the competent project team from DEIF,” he concludes.
With the upgraded Delomatic 4 on board, the Seven Viking is making a significant contribution to a brighter future for shipping – and in general - with reduced fuel consumption and carbon emissions; in line with Equinor contract terms – and for the benefit of the climate.
