Save the Date: Demonstration of Hybrid Electric Propulsion System for Small Vessels, 22nd May 2019, Falmouth
The HEVIMA Innovate UK Project, led by REAPsystems, will be demonstrating its innovative modular hybrid propulsion at an event in Falmouth on Wednesday 22nd May 2019.
The event, which is free to attend, will enable interested parties to see the hybrid propulsion system in use on the working passenger ferry Kingsley II. Participants will learn about the benefits and opportunities this technology can offer through the technical presentations and there will be an opportunity to network with the HEVIMA project team.
The event is taking place on Wednesday 22nd May 2019, 10.00-15.00 at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth.
HEVIMA is co-funded through the Government's modern industrial strategy by Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory. The project which is lead by REAPsystems has developed an innovative hybrid propulsion system that will potentially offer significant savings in fuel, engine power rating, weight, emissions, as well as reduced noise and vibration for commercial vessels up to 250kw.
The HEVIMA partners are:
* REAPsystems Project Lead
