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

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.
