The maritime industry is currently experiencing an increased interest in electric powered vessels. The driving forces include the current development in battery technology, potential for lowering operational costs, increased capacity of drivetrain and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. One of the crucial aspects is finding out when battery and hybrid propulsion is a feasible way of meeting the targets for a specific ship, including its operational profile. A number of recent projects shows that SSPA has the tools and knowledge to support our clients with answers to their questions and to evaluate different alternatives for propulsion, from batteries and fuel tanks to propellers. We will share our expertise in a seminar in Gothenburg on 30 August.
