BAE Systems’ next-generation power and propulsion system for the marine market is a flexible solution to help vessel operators reach zero emissions.

Building on its 25 years of experience in electric propulsion, BAE Systems has launched its next-generation HybryGen power and propulsion system for the marine market. The flexible solution is designed to help operators reach zero emissions – improving electrical efficiency and vessel range, increasing propulsion power, and simplifying installation.

The next-generation HybriGen system uses smaller and lighter components for vessels. Its modular accessory power system (MAPS) and modular power control system (MPCS) allow for a scalable, tailor-made solution to fit the specific power and propulsion requirements of a range of vessels, from sailboats and tugs to passenger ferries.

“Our investment in this next-generation technology will provide marine operators with cutting-edge capabilities to create clean transportation,” said Steve Trichka, vice president and general manager of Power & Propulsion Solutions at BAE Systems. “Using a modular design, we can customize our solution to meet the exact needs of each customer, simplifying the installation and improving system reliability. The increased propulsion power and electrical efficiency mean our customers can now accelerate their journey to zero emissions.”

BAE Systems’ electric propulsion technology supports low and zero emission applications with proven controls and components that are available in multiple system configurations.

Work on the HybriGen Power and Propulsion System will be conducted at the company’s facility in Endicott, N.Y.
