The event will highlight the potential use of high performance marine battery systems and stored energy

This unique event brings together an international group of experts armed with the latest knowledge to highlight the potential use of high performance marine battery systems and stored energy.

The event will be held at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton, UK, on 28 April.

The objective is to identify a range of genuine solutions for fishing vessels, workboats, pilot boats, wind farm support vessels, survey vessels, scientific research craft, superyachts, military craft and unmanned vessels.

Attendees include commercial and military end-user organisations, boat builders, engine manufacturers, mechanical and electrical engineers, naval architects and legislators. 

The fast moving battery workshop sessions will focus on informal discussion and industry experience from subject matter experts including Lloyds Register and DNV-GL. Hybrid sessions focus on simple and viable business cases for next generation vessels of all sizes including The Hour Of Power concept. Presenters will highlight how fuel can be saved, maintenance costs reduced and engine life extended.

Supporters of the event include Southampton Marine & Maritime Institute, British Marine and BAE Systems HybriDrive. Robert Young of US based XALT Energy will use his session to quantify the footprint, weight and cost benefits of marine Lithium-ion battery systems. 

The knowledge gained from these workshop sessions will help to shape long term decisions that lead to improvements for in-service systems and procurement of next generation vessels that fit the changing requirements of modern fleets.
