Hybrid Marine Power & Propulsion Workshop – Southampton 13 & 14 May 2015

Tue, 05 May 2015

SSA are pleased to support the first ‘Hybrid Marine Power & Propulsion Workshop’ being held at The Grand Harbour Hotel in the port of Southampton.

SSA member Shock Mitigation is bringing together a group of experts armed with the latest knowledge that will assist the sub IMO professional sector to understand the possibilities of utilising hybrid power and storage systems. The aim is to identify the potential of hybrid systems for specific sectors, starting with diesel / electric for wind farm support vessels, pilot boats, patrol craft, survey vessels and unmanned craft.

The Hybrid Marine event will bring together an international group of experts armed with the latest knowledge that will assist the sub IMO / sub 24 metre professional sector to understand the possibilities of utilising hybrid power and storage systems onboard. Lead sponsor of the Hybrid Marine event is US lithium ion battery manufacturer XALT Energy. Supporters include BAE Systems Hybri-Drive from the US and Torqeedo Deep Blue electric drive systems from Germany.

Workshop Lead for the Hybrid Marine event, John Haynes of Shock Mitigation, said, ‘Changes are coming fast in the marine sector. Due to the range of technologies required boat builders, diesel engine OEMs and specialist component manufacturers will need to work together to provide complete hybrid systems.’

The dynamic two day workshop programme is designed to bring together a significant industry group including end-user organisations, boat owners, operators, boat builders, engine manufacturers, mechanical & electrical engineers and naval architects.

For engine manufacturers, component suppliers and installers the take away knowledge from this workshop will be relevant to various departments including strategic product development, engineering and business development. Besides highlighting opportunities for electric drives and lithium ion batteries the objective will be to create affiliations that share engine data, future industry requirements and work cycles for vessels

For end user organisations, including owners and operators, the knowledge gained from these workshop sessions will help to shape decisions that lead to procurement of next generation vessels and improvements to in-service systems. Break out sessions will focus on diesel / electric systems for wind farm support vessels, pilot boats, patrol craft, survey vessels and unmanned craft.

Robert Young, Technical Lead for Marine Applications and Joe LoGrasso, Director of Pack Engineering at US lithium ion battery manufacturer XALT Energy are presenting part of the workshop programme. Their expertise will help attendees to identify the potential of hybrid systems for specific sectors.  John Haynes of Shock Mitigation, added, ‘It is great to have XALT Energy onboard for this landmark event. Robert and Joe’s extensive expertise from automotive and land based applications will help to explain the capabilities of next generation lithium ion technology to the marine industry.’

Christoph Ballin, Co-founder and CEO of Torqeedo is presenting part of the workshop programme. His knowledge will help attendees to identify the potential of hybrid systems for specific sectors. Break out sessions will focus on power & propulsion systems for wind farm support vessels, pilot boats, patrol craft, survey vessels and unmanned craft. John Haynes of Shock Mitigation, added, ‘Christoph’s expertise from extensive R&D linked to successful Torqeedo Deep Blue applications will help to explain the capabilities of next generation hybrid drives.’
