BAE Systems Introduces Next Generation HybriGen Power and Propulsion System for Marine Applications
BAE Systems has launched its next generation power and propulsion system for the marine market. The HybriGen Power and Propulsion system is a flexible solution to help operators achieve zero emissions, improving electrical efficiency and vessel range, increasing propulsive power and simplifying installation.
The HybriGen Power and Propulsion solution uses variable speed generator sets to create electricity for the ship’s auxiliary power and electric propulsion. The system uses the generated electricity to supply power to hotel loads, energy storage system or in parallel with other power sources for greater energy demand and greater system flexibility.
The new HybriGen Power and Propulsion system uses smaller, lighter components for ships, building 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 a scalable and tailor-made solution to meet the specific power and propulsion needs of a range of ships, sailboats and tugs to passenger ferries.
Using a modular design, we can customize our solution to meet the exact needs of each customer, simplifying installation and improving system reliability.
âSteve Trichka, Vice President and General Manager of Power and Propulsion Solutions at BAE Systems
BAE Systems electric propulsion technology supports low-emission and zero-emission applications with proven controls and components available in multiple system configurations.
Work on the HybriGen power and propulsion system will be conducted at the company’s facilities in Endicott, NY.
