Green Ship for Greenpeace


Green Ship for Greenpeace

Imtech Marine Group (Holland) has been commissioned to supply the entire ‘green’ technical infrastructure on board Greenpeace new flagship ‘Rainbow Warrior III’. Greenpeace wants its new flagship to be the ultimate example of sustainability. The ship therefore has a ’green’ design, is constructed from environmentally friendly materials, is equipped with ‘green’ technology and is characterised by the recycling of energy and water. The design is based on an extensive sustainability study. Preliminary tests were carried out at the Delft University of Technology and in a wind tunnel operated by Wolfson Unit Southampton.

The ‘Rainbow Warrior III’ will be fully equipped with sails. Imtech Marine Group will be handling the engineering and a number of ‘green’ technical solutions, including the energy-efficient electrical propulsion, which results in considerable energy savings and substantially lower carbon emissions compared to a conventional propulsion system. This technology will only be used when there is not enough wind to sail.

The emitted residual heat will be used to heat the water system. The intelligent integration of all electrical and electronic systems on board allows for additional energy savings. An important role has been assigned to the sustainable platform automation and the intelligent energy distribution system. In addition, the ship will fitted with a helicopter platform, a conference room for 50 people and a ‘campaign office’, with the most up-to-date navigation and communications technology.
