High Performance Marine Batteries & Stored Energy Workshop – Southampton – 28 April 2016

Mon, 18 April 2016

This unique event brings together an international group of experts armed with the latest knowledge to highlight the potential use of high performance marine battery systems and stored energy. The objective is to identify a range of genuine solutions for workboats, pilot boats, wind farm support vessels, survey vessels, scientific research craft, fishing vessels, superyachts, military craft and unmanned vessels.

Attendees include commercial and military end-user organisations, boat builders, engine manufacturers, mechanical and electrical engineers, naval architects and legislators. This fast moving knowledge and networking event focuses on the latest onboard energy solutions for vessels of all sizes.

Workshop organiser, John Haynes, said, ‘We focus on viable innovation and using people’s time effectively. Next Generation events are dynamic and relevant, with focus on long breaks to encourage networking. We know that having the right people onboard is essential and there is no substitute for meeting the experts face to face when asking the hard questions.’

Workshop sessions focus on informal discussion and industry experience from subject matter experts including Lloyds Register and DNV-GL. A relevant topic is high energy battery installations, including Lithium-ion. Hybrid sessions focus on simple and viable business cases for next generation vessels of all sizes including The Hour Of Power concept. This is not just green energy for the sake of it as presenters highlight how fuel can be saved, maintenance costs reduced and engine life extended.

Lead supporters of the event are Southampton Marine & Maritime Institute, British Marine, BAE Systems HybriDrive and US lithium ion battery manufacturer XALT Energy. Robert Young, Marine Technical Lead of XALT Energy, will show the viability of fast emerging technologies in a session titled, 'The footprint, weight and cost benefits of marine Lithium-ion battery systems.’ 

Boat builders and specialist component manufacturers now recognise that they need to work together to develop next generation systems that fit the changing requirements of modern fleets. The unique knowledge gained from these workshop sessions will help to shape long term decisions that lead to improvements for in-service systems and procurement of next generation vessels.

The one day Workshop is being held at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton on 28 April. The cost to attend, including lunch and refreshments, is £195 per person or £165 for SSA, British Marine and RINA members.
