MARINE HYBRID 4 SOURCES PLATFORM: A WORLD FIRST PROTOTYPE AT SEA

PH4S is the first marine hybrid prototype being tested at sea, it is also a step forward towards the MLiner.

The main objective of PH4S program is to demonstrate the feasibility of the combination of sources and reduction of electricity generation intermittency versus a single source solution.

Start: January 2014

End of sea trials: July 2017 (a total of 2 years of testing)

Key figures:

  • Budget: € 1 million
  • Size: Length: 6 m – Width: 3.5 m – Height: 9.5 m
  • Dry weight: 13 tonnes
  • Installed power: 5 kilowatts

KEY FEATURES AND TECHNOLOGICAL BARRIERS

  • Based on offshore proven components
  • Energy mix (type and size generators, sensor type and size) according to the energy consumption profile and characteristics of the mooring site
  • Limitation of renewable energy intermittence through a combination of sources and integrated storage system
  • Innovative mooring system for easy installation and energy transfer to the seabed
  • Combination of different energy sources through electronic, hydrodynamic or electrical solutions
  • Control strategy to optimize overall power generation
