Safety Aspects of Marine Hybrid Technology

The IMCA Marine DP Committee is pleased to announce its next webinar on Safety Aspects of Marine Hybrid Technology to take place on Wednesday 1 July 2020 from 11:00am BST to 12:00pm BST.

If you are interested in joining the webinar, please contact

The webinar will cover:

  • Hybrid technology has proved to be a beneficial one improving system efficiency and reducing greenhouse gases emissions.
  • Lithium ion batteries provide an excellent form of energy storage system which is an imperative part of a hybrid system.
  • Conventional lithium ion batteries suffer from a major drawback called thermal runaway with high risks of explosion if not monitored and controlled drastically.
  • Lithium ion batteries using Graphene mitigates the thermal runaway risks to a great degree making them safer, lighter and more sustainable.
