Fishing Vessel Energy Efficiency

9Fishing Vessel Energy Efficiency Project – Phase 2

Energy Efficiency on Fishing Vessels: Refrigeration (Module 4) –  This video discusses how to save energy and fuel related to use of refrigeration systems onboard commercial fishing vessels. The video is a recording of a presentation made by Mike Gaffney to a room of commercial fishermen in Sitka, Alaska on October 29, 2016 during a luncheon. Please excuse the light background noise. Mike Gaffney works for Navis Energy Management Solutions and has the following credentials: C.E.M, C.E.A., C.P.Q. USCG Licensed Chief Engineering, Unlimited HP Senior Engineer. This is the fourth of five short modules. The full slide deck is available by contacting alfastaff@gmail.com or contacting afdf.org. In collaboration with: Alaska Longline Fisherman’s Association, Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation, NOAA, Sea Grant Alaska, The State of Alaska, Renewable Energy Alaska Project, Southeast Conference, Sustainable Southeast Partnership, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation.

AFDF was awarded a grant from NOAA to further efforts to help fishermen reduce fuel costs on vessels. In Phase 2, AFDF will collaborate with Alaska Longline Fishermen’s Association (ALFA) to conduct additional vessel energy audits, improve a beta-version of an Energy Analysis Tool, finalize a fishermen-friendly online version of this Tool, and increase capacity in Alaska to conduct future energy audits and energy efficiency analysis.

On January 29, 2016, a presentation was made regarding the results of Phase 1 at the Young Fishermen’s Summit in Juneau. Vessel owners were also asked to volunteer to test the beta-version of the Energy Analysis Tool and provide feedback on its user-friendliness. This project is financially supported by NOAA Award # NA15NMF4270275.
