Yesterday we got a visit from the Tharsis as the ship docked at our quayside in preparation of the upcoming installation of FludicAL in week 43. The vessel is owned and operated by the visionary Tharsis Sea-River Shipping company that has a firm commitment of becoming zero-emissions. In words of the Jan Albert Bosma, managing owner: "On the road to zero-emission vessels with electric propulsion systems based on alternative energy sources it is essential to reduce the initial power consumption on board. The technology is there today. Marine Performance Systems will install their Fluidic Air Lubrication system on our m/v Tharsis which will help reduce the hull friction."
