The International Council of Marine Industry Associations' first International Hybrid Marine Propulsion Conference is set for Nov. 14 in Amsterdam prior to the opening of the Marine Equipment Trade Show.

The conference will review the technical issues surrounding the design and implementation of marine hybrids and provide objective data about their advantages and disadvantages.

It will draw heavily on new information from the EU Hybrid Marine, or HYMAR project, organizers said. The HYMAR project is an ICOMIA-led collaborative research project that aims to develop state-of-the-art marine hybrid systems for displacement vessels up to about 24 meters long.

The presentations will be of interest to anyone considering investing in hybrids, including boatbuilders, equipment suppliers, systems integrators and naval architects.

Speakers include Malo Yachts, Mastervolt, Steyr Motors, J&J Marine, Homewood Products, Bruntons, Insean, Triskel Marine and ICOMIA. Jean-Jacques Woeldgen of the European Commission will present the EU policy context.
