In a clear commitment for sustainability in the fisheries sector, Regional Administration for Economy and Industry of Xunta de Galicia and EnergyLab Technology Centre signed a cooperation agreement with the goal of performing a demonstration project based on the application of hybrid power supply systems in a fishing vessel. Such a project aims to analyze the feasibility of implementing hybridelectric powertrain systems in the Galician coastal fleet. The final purpose is the implementation of more efficient and environmental friendly propulsion systems within the marine industry. The project scope consists in defining a technical solution for the replacement of diesel propulsion system in a standard fishing vessel (12m. long), representative of the Galician inshore fleet, by a hybrid-electric system powered by three different types of energy sources.
