Overcoming the barriers

Join expert panel members at SeaworkConnect as they discuss ‘Overcoming the barriers to hybrid & electric development’ on Thursday 7 October from 14:00 - 15:00 BST.

Focussing on hybrid battery/diesel propulsion and full electric propulsion technology, the panel will look specifically at the challenges faced in developing this sector technology and considerations that need to be taken into account when designing, building and operating hybrid and electric vessels.  New technology and projects coming to market that are overcoming these challenges/barriers will come under the spotlight.

Moderated by Alan Cartwright, Director -Blabey Engineering, and supported by SMI, Tom Chant, Chief Executive Officer – SMI, will make the session’s welcome address.

Christophe Rident, Lead Naval Architect (Commercial vessels and high-speed ferries) BMT, will focus on the integration of all the components which make up a hybrid propulsion system to ensure an optimised solution is obtained, referring to a 34m Patrol Catamaran that is currently in build as the case study for specific examples. 

Ryan Reilly, Sales and Business Development Manager - MJR Power & Automation, will speak on Optimisation of Hybrid & Electric Systems; covering existing barriers to the adaptation of battery storage systems and how these can be overcome with correct design, dimensioning and selection to meet the required vessel duty cycle and what infrastructure is required to support these operations. 
Jostein Bogen, Vice President - Product Line Manager Electric Solutions, ABB Marine & Ports, will cover the holistic view of infrastructure and supply chain challenges and solutions, as well as how to future proof power and propulsion plants for new technology and fuels.

‘Overcoming the barriers to hybrid & electric development’  Thursday 7 October: 14:00 - 15:00 BST. To join this free-to-attend session, register for SeaworkConnect, which takes place from 5-7 October, here
