  • SOLUTION
  • ABB’s all-in-one protection and control solution does this by embedding all the software and intelligence inside a smart circuit breaker known as the Emax 2 low-voltage circuit breaker that is designed for marine applications.

  • DATA COLLECTED
  • OPERATIONAL IMPACT
  • Impact #1

    The solution will help ships attain better energy efficiency and work towards achieving the International Marine Organization's goal to reduce CO2 emissions by 5 times in 30 years.

    Impact #2

    The Emax 2 will also help ships achieve continuous operation that can potentially save them on average up to 12 million dollars a year. This is achieved by employing a unique “digital zone selectivity” function that correctly identifies the fault zone faster and cuts its power supply earlier.

    Impact #3

    The solution will also allow for power profile optimization thanks to intelligent peak shaving and load shifting capabilities.

  • QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
  • Benefit #1

    Switchgear optimization will reduce weight and space requirements by up to 25% which is crucial in the ship building industry.
