Saving fuel and the environment with sustainable marine propulsion solutions

Marine propulsion solutions

Red & White Fleet's E... Red & White Fleet has a vision to decrease our global footprint using zero-emission technology, the launch of the Enhydra is the first step.
Red and White Fleet is reducing their carbon footprint by using hybrid marine and electric marine solutions from BAE Systems on their San Francisco Bay sightseeing tours.
Using our electric marine, electric hybrid marine, and hydrogen fuel cell marine propulsion systems, we give tour boats, ferry operators, tugboats, and other commercial watercraft an edge toward saving fuel, operating costs, and the environment.

Economic and environmental factors that sparked power technology innovation in land vehicles also prompted eco-friendly energy solutions for water vessels. Fuel efficient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly propulsion and power systems for workboats and ships are in high demand, and BAE Systems has industry-leading smart electric marine, hybrid marine, and hydrogen fuel cell marine propulsion systems that answer the call decisively.

HybriGen® power and propulsion

Keeping waterways clean is important to our health and survival. BAE Systems is helping provide sustainable water transport with our HybriGen power and propulsion solution. Our HybriGen system uses proven technology developed for the rugged transit duty cycle on land and takes it to the water.

With 12,000+ transit buses operating around the globe using BAE Systems' hybrid technology, we're proud to bring this proven technology to water vessels for fuel savings and quiet, clean travel.

HybriGen® Power

Turn off your diesel genset and save with non-polluting HybriGen Power. This eco-friendly system provides tow boat and fishing fleet operators with 200KWs of electric power on demand to eliminate maintenance of a standard diesel generator while decreasing space use and saving fuel and emissions. HybriGen Power provides power for all hotel loads while the main engine is running. Efficiency comes from taking power off the main engine when the engine is running at its most efficient point. Turning off or eliminating the boat's diesel generators save on maintenance and fuel due to less use.

HybriGen® Assist

Our HybriGen Assist propulsion system offers unique solutions for tugboats and windfarm support vessels to save maintenance and engine life while increasing power and performance. HybriGen Assist delivers electric power on demand for vessels at low speeds and boosts power to the engine when needed. Using our compact, power-packed generator and motor electric, power generation, and electric boost modes are available to vessel operators.
