Armed with the latest knowledge from around the world, an international group of experts will identify the potential of utilising innovative power and propulsion systems for vessels in the sub IMO / sub 24 metre sector. Changes are coming fast in the Commercial, Professional and Military Marine Sectors Due to the range of technologies required boat builders, engine OEMs and specialist component manufacturers now recognise that they need to work together to develop next generation systems that fit the changing requirements of modern fleets. For engine manufacturers, component suppliers and installers the take away knowledge from the Hybrid Marine Workshop in May 2015 and the Hybrid Marine Conference in October 2015 has already proved relevant to various departments including strategic product development, engineering decisions and business development. Besides highlighting current opportunities, including the integration of electric drives and high energy lithium ion batteries, the ongoing objective has been to create affiliations that share engine data and work cycles for vessels in various sectors. Next Generation Marine Power & Propulsion conference The Next Generation Marine Power & Propulsion programme will bring together a dynamic marine industry group. For commercial, professional and military end user organisations the unique knowledge gained from conference presentations and networking sessions will help to shape long term decisions that lead to improvements for in-service systems and procurement of next generation vessels. Conference attendees will include commercial and military end-user organisations, boat operators, boat builders, engine manufacturers, mechanical & electrical engineers, naval architects and legislators. Presentations will include the latest systems for workboats, pilot boats, patrol craft, wind farm support vessels, survey vessels, scientific research craft, superyachts, military and unmanned craft.
