Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
-George Bernard Shaw
Saturday was Earth Day and it is always a good time to remember that we all need to protect our natural resources. At MER we are committed to downsizing our carbon footprint from product innovations to office recycling and composting – we strive to be good stewards of our planet.
We believe in investing in products to help our customers burn less fuel and put less carbon into the atmosphere. Products that are good investments will pay for themselves over time and will reduce your carbon emissions and thereby, operating costs.
Here are just a few of the ways our products can save you money and help the planet.
We oversize the electrical windings on all our BOLLARD Generators – larger windings mean they’re more efficient and the engines don’t have to work as hard to make electricity.
That means your genset burns thousands of gallons less fuel over its lifetime and a lot less CO2 ends up in the atmosphere.
We have been working on this hybrid electric system that allows vessel operators to run their generators at peak efficiency and then turn them off and run the vessel systems on stored energy.
Carbon emissions from ship generators will be cut in half or even better. New inverter and phase conversion technology is allowing us to do things never before possible. We can now use battery storage in constant parallel with ship generators to boost power when needed to allow the installation of smaller generators and to take over when power demand is low. We’re utilizing distribution controllers that automatically switch power sources and optimize generator run time.
