BB Green – in search of battery excellence
Hans Thornell Executive director Green City Ferries SWEDEN
BB Green is a new high-speed, all-electric ferry concept based on an ASV hull that rides on an air cushion. It was awarded Propulsion System of the Year at last year's conference. However, making 28 knots with 80 passengers puts a heavy demand on the batteries: high C-rate for supercharging, long lifetime/many cycles, light weight. To meet these criteria, we had to develop new batteries.

Tools and methods for enhanced testing of electronic control units
Matthias Deter Group manager engineering dSPACE GmbH GERMANY
The complexity of modern control electronics is continuously increasing, and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation has become a standard method of testing, particularly for distributed control systems. HIL testing of power electronics and electric drive systems requires special solutions. In addition to the high dynamic demands of electric drive systems, testing of power electronic control units often requires handling of the real energy flow within a virtual environment, simulated to satisfy the controller internal logic and sensor interfaces.
The ship is a microgrid – digital twin concept
Matt Baker Director of microgrids and critical power Typhoon HIL Inc USA
Modern navy vessels must operate in far more arduous conditions than ever before, while producing more power. At the same time, power generation systems cannot increase in size, and storage must be integrated. High-fidelity real-time modelling of ship power systems is therefore only one part of the story. Modelling of ship power systems must also allow thermal modelling of those systems, because compact packaging of the high-power systems requires advanced thermal management. With Typhoon HIL’s Marine Microgrid Testbed, engineers can get a high-fidelity, real-time overview of the electric power behaviour and thermal behaviour of ships’ power systems.
Gapless power analysis of electric motors

Drive-line layout and operational aspects are covered with propulsion system simulations.
Turning the tide – low-carbon options for Pacific shipping
Dr Peter Nuttall Scientific and technical advisor University of the South Pacific FIJI
Pacific island states stand at the front line of climate change. We are a maritime continent, and shipping is our absolute lifeline. However, all options are currently powered by fossil fuel. Shipping is a major user of imported fuel in this region and a major source of GHG emissions. Alternative technologies, wind hybrid in particular, offer attainable solutions for a transition to low-carbon transport for the region, but critical barriers of perception, policy and financing remain. The Micronesian Center for Sustainable Transport is a unique experiment to transition an entire country and act as a catalyst.

New two-step parallel-hybrid drive for big yachts and smaller commercial vessels
Gerhard Hesse Sales manager hybrid drive systems Fischer Panda GmbH GERMANY
The HV systems of Fischer Panda have been expanded by a new, two-step electric parallel drive, designed mainly for re-fit of big yachts and commercial vessels whose owners want to keep their standard combustion engines, but also want to add the benefit of electric propulsion. This EasyBox-based parallel-drive fits into almost all yachts and can be installed with minimum effort – a perfect, cost-effective alternative to gearbox solutions with PTI/PTO coupling. It combines the best of two worlds and provides maximum comfort and safety – also by adding redundancy through an electric motor coupled to the the main engine.
CellSwap – reduce waste, increase value, future-proof your investment
Brent Perry CEO PBES CANADA
PBES leads the marine and industrial energy storage industry in sustainability with CellSwap, which offers the ability to re-core and refurbish a lithium-ion battery at end of service life. Rather than an entire battery system entering the electronic waste stream, CellSwap means that only the cells in the system are removed and replaced. The rest of the hardware remains intact and is reused. This reduces the amount of end-of-life e-waste by >70%, and lowers replacement cost. Furthermore, the customer can take advantage of advances in cell technology as they become available.

Amperetta hybrid-drive changes everything.
Gary Wright Business development Amperetta GmbH GERMANY
Electric boats are quiet, but until now have only offered the choice between very expensive or painfully slow. Amperetta hybrid -drive changes that. It is the first powerful and affordable full-hybrid on the water. A strong electric motor which can accelerate quickly up to gliding phase and operates almost silently at slow and moderate speeds. If you need more thrust, or the battery is discharged, the combustion engine starts automatically and uses the electric motor as a generator to quickly recharge the battery. This presentation will review the Amperetta system which, not only lowers noise, but reduces the fuel consumption dramatically, all that at an only slightly higher price of a comparable maritime diesel engine.
