< VIDEO REVIEW >
A hybrid car carrier that incorporates natural energy, the "EMERALD ACE," jointly developed by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and Panasonic set sail. The vessel is equipped with Panasonic's "HIT Double" solar modules and the "lithium-ion battery system," which together contribute to significantly reducing CO2 emissions while loading and unloading cargo in the port. This video takes a closer look at Panasonic's energy solutions that help bring to life a new generation of shipping vessels. Please also have a look at the rows of solar modules on deck and discover the additional role storage batteries are playing on board.
