ICOMIA holds hybrid propulsion conferencePosted on
The International Council of Marine Industry Associations’ first International Hybrid Marine Propulsion Conference turned out to be a success as it preceded METS on Monday at the Amsterdam RAI, the organization said.
“ICOMIA is very pleased to be leading this conference,” ICOMIA secretary general Tony Rice said in a statement. “We are delighted about the turnout and the support we have from Amsterdam RAI with a superb setting of the Emerald Lounge.”
The conference, which drew heavily on new information from the European Union-funded Hybrid Marine, or HYMAR project, reviewed the technical issues surrounding the design and implementation of marine hybrids and provided objective data about their advantages and disadvantages.
“Today’s conference has allowed us to pass on to the industry much of the detailed information to be discovered in the HYMAR project, which has been running now for nearly three years,” Rice said.
The daylong conference opened with a speech on the future of the marine industry by ICOMIA president Lorenzo Selva. He spoke about the importance of the HYMAR project, concluding that marine companies will benefit from the findings and that “the knowledge will flow down to the remaining industry.”
Selva’s opening speech was followed by speakers from the European Commission, Mastervolt, Enersys, Steyr Motors, J&J Marine, Homewood Products, Bruntons, Insean, Triskel Marine and ICOMIA.
