Accelleron Partners with Japanese Firms for Cleaner Shipping

Accelleron turbochargers are helping the Japanese shipping industry reduce carbon emissions. The company has partnered with three Japanese firms: BEMAC, Furuno, and MAKITA. Turbo Systems United, based in Tokyo and partially owned by Accelleron, recently announced these partnerships in a press release from Baden, Aargau, Switzerland.

BEMAC supplies a maritime data platform and technical services for ship operations and cargo management. They also develop electrical and information systems for marine vessels. Hideyuki Terada from BEMAC stated that combining their infrastructure with Accelleron’s digital solutions moves them closer to achieving “a ship that never stops.”

Last month, Accelleron and Turbo Systems United partnered with Furuno, a supplier of ship radar systems with over 40% market share in the global merchant fleet. They aim to simplify access to turbochargers, engine optimization, and digital services.

Accelleron also agreed to supply turbochargers for MAKITA’s first small-bore two-stroke marine engine with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). MAKITA manufactures marine engines for 10,000–40,000-ton ships and is a global builder of small two-stroke engines. The agreement will enhance the efficiency of MAKITA engines, further supporting the decarbonization of the shipping industry.
