Title: ALTERNATIVE HYBRID PROPULSION ON SHIPS
Authors: Odengard, Andreas
Larsson, Philip
Abstract: Diesel-battery hybrids can be found all around the world in different set-ups depending on the purpose of the specific unit. They can be used in vehicles as power supply, in power plants to produce power on land or as propulsion on ships. Gas turbine-battery hybrids in a marine perspective are not as common. Gas turbines are, however, common as propulsion or as an auxiliary drive on ships. Due to the high emission standards that are upcoming in the near future this hybrid set-up is a good way for lowering emissions and for bringing batteries to even more use than it is today. In this literature review the results are achieved by various tools and facts about which batteries are best for marine propulsion, what different hybrid methods are used and lastly a SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis shows the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats from an overview perspective of the different configurations. The subjected area is new and not a lot of information is given from credible sources, because of this, the report answered the result through a SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis gave us several important findings however the most important one is rethinking from an environmental perspective.
