In Marine Log’s latest Listen Up! podcast, we interview Joseph Hudspeth, Director of Business Development-Global Marine at BAE Systems, to learn more about hybrid solutions for vessels and the current trends the company is seeing throughout the industry. Hudspeth discusses how using a non-battery vs. battery option impacts fuel consumption and what needs to be contemplated when considering plug-in hybrid solutions.
Hudspeth also follows up on the podcast we did last year, where we discussed hybrid electric power and propulsion on vessels. In this update, he touches on some trends the industry is seeing and how BAE Systems’ HybriGen system is helping operators to meet emission requirements.
