In this Tried & Tested, yacht bedding specialist Sea Design conducts a review into the best duvets, quilts and pillows on the market. It tests a series of leading products to work out the best yacht bedding money can buy.
This comes after a debut contract between the two with ABB to supply two 2.5 MW Azipod units, together with propulsion drives and controls.
Azipod technology is based on a steerable propulsion system whose electric drive is contained in a submerged pod outside the ship’s hull rotating through 360 degrees. It is said to cut fuel consumption by up to 20 percent compared to traditional shaftline propulsion systems.
ABB says it is applicable to a broad variety of vessel types from cruise ships to tankers and ferries and is equally well-suited to environmentally conscious superyacht manufacturers.
“With Oceanco’s ultimate goal of zero impact on the environment, we are delighted to collaborate with ABB Marine & Ports, whose leading-edge technologies are known for delivering the sustainability benefits increasingly sought by superyacht owners,” said Remco Jurgens, naval architect at Oceanco.
“We see ABB as a leading supplier and an essential partner for future developments.
“Efficient energy management systems, energy storage, and advanced propulsion systems are considered fundamental to achieving our goal.”
