The history of diesel electric propulsion for boats

This seminar will illustrate the reasons for making diesel-electric propulsion systems for vessels designed for long-range cruising around the world.

The first vessel with this kind of propulsion was launched in 1903. Only now is this system starting to be implemented for vessels between 500 and 2000 gross tons (GT).

The workshop will present the various technologies applied to a vessel to optimise energy production and management.
