BAE SYSTEMS LAUNCHES ZERO-EMISSION MARINE POWER AND PROPULSION SYSTEM

Wednesday, November 24, 2021 

BAE Systems has announced details of its HybriGen Power and Propulsion, said to offer flexibility, improved electrical efficiency and vessel range, increased propulsion power, and simplified installation, helping operators reach zero emissions

HybriGen uses smaller and lighter components and builds on the company’s 25 years of experience in electric propulsion systems. Its modular accessory power system (MAPS) and modular power control system (MPCS) allow for a scalable, tailor-made solution to fit the specific power and propulsion requirements of a range of vessels, from tugs to passenger ferries.

Steve Trichka, VP and GM of Power & Propulsion Solutions, BAE Systems, said: “Our investment in this next-generation technology will provide marine operators with cutting-edge capabilities to create clean transportation. Using a modular design, we can customise our solution to meet the exact needs of each customer, simplifying the installation and improving system reliability. The increased propulsion power and electrical efficiency mean our customers can now accelerate their journey to zero emissions.”

The technology is considered to support low and zero emission applications with proven controls and components that are available in multiple system configurations. BAE Systems has more than 14,000 power and propulsion systems in global markets. The company says that those systems save more than 30 million gallons of fuel and eliminate 335,000 tons of CO2 each year. Work on the HybriGen Power and Propulsion System will be conducted at the company’s US facility in Endicott, NY.
