BAE Systems has launched its next-generation power and propulsion system for the marine market. The HybriGen Power and Propulsion system is designed to minimize emissions by improving electrical efficiency and vessel range, increasing propulsion power, and simplifying installation. Work on the HybriGen System will be conducted at the company’s facility in Endicott, New York.
The system uses components that are smaller and lighter than its predecessors. The modular accessory power system (MAPS) and modular power control system (MPCS) allow for a scalable design that can be customized to fit the specific power and propulsion requirements of a range of vessels, from sailboats to tugs to passenger ferries.
“Our investment in this next-generation technology will provide marine operators with cutting-edge capabilities to create clean transportation,” said Steve Trichka, VP at BAE Systems. “Using a modular design, we can customize 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.”
