The Ulstein Thor ship just might be the world’s first to feature a Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (MSR) capable of generating large amounts of clean, safe electricity. This enables the 3R (Replenishment, Research and Rescue) vessel to operate as a mobile power / charging station for a new line of battery-driven cruise ships.
If Thor becomes a reality, it would realize the vision of zero-emission cruise operations. Ulstein took the first step by developing the ULSTEIN SIF concept, a 100m long, 160 POB capacity, zero-emission expedition cruise ship. This Ice Class 1C vessel will be powered by next-generation batteries, utilizing ‘Thor’ to recharge while at sea. Now just imagine if the E1 Series RaceBird was equipped with a Thorium Molten Salt Reactor.
- Solar charger, as long as there is sunlight, four high-conversion solar charging panels can be continuously charged. Its solar power is 12W and the input current is 1.5A.
- Solar power bank 38800mAh large battery, let you get rid of the anxiety of battery power anytime and anywhere.
- Solar power bank has a wireless charging function, 2 USB output ports, can charge up to 3 devices at the same time. Note: Only Qi-enabled devices are compatible with wireless charging.
- Power bank is waterproof, drop-proof and dust-proof, and can still work normally in extreme environments.
- Solar power bank has a built-in smart chip that can automatically identify and be compatible with different devices, convert fluctuating voltage into stable voltage, stabilize the device, and ensure safe use.
We have the goals, ambition and environmental imperative to switch to zero-emission operations, but, until now, we haven’t had the solution. We believe ‘Thor’ might be the answer we’ve been looking for. ‘Thor’ is essentially a floating, multi-purpose ‘power station’ that will enable a new battery revolution,” said Cathrine Kristiseter Marti, Ulstein CEO.
