ICOMIA Announces 2nd International Hybrid Marine Propulsion Conference


The International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) has confirmed its second annual International Hybrid Marine Propulsion Conference will be held immediately preceding the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) in Amsdterdam, Netherlands, on Monday 12 November 2012. The conference will be held at the Amsterdam RAI. 

ICOMIA is inviting leading experts to present the latest hybrid developments and deliver a unique insight into hybrid system design, construction and operation. The call for speakers is open to everybody and expressions of interests are requested by Friday, June 15. Abstracts will be reviewed by an expert panel and successful speakers will be announced in late summer.

"With hybrid cars continuing to generate a great deal of consumer interest, there is increasing pressure for our industry to provide cost effective hybrid boats' says Tony Rice, ICOMIA Secretary General. "In response to this pressure, this year's Conference will concentrate on practical solutions for marine hybrid propulsion and, for the first time, will include a technology showcase. The Conference will provide an opportunity for delegates to review current state of the art designs and discuss future technologies and trends'.
