DASA explores solutions for innovations in hybrid powertrain technologies that could power Royal Navy ships and reduce carbon emissions
The Defense and Security Accelerator (DASA) is pleased to launch a new market study called Naval Fleet Hybridization, which aims to identify hybrid powertrain technologies for Royal Navy (RN) and Royal Navy (RN) ships. the Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA).
This market exploration is being conducted on behalf of the UK Department of Defense (MOD) Naval Ship Support Central Engineering team and is researching hybrid powertrain technologies to explore options that will be implemented by then 2030, in order to support the sustainable defense development strategy to reduce carbon emissions by 2050. Proposals submitted to this market exploration must be at Technological Readiness Levels (TRL) 5-9.

Using Hybrid Engines to Reduce Emissions from Royal Navy Ships and Auxiliary Vessels Hybrid powertrain solutions for RN and RFA ships could reduce emissions by 20-40% by 2030. We want to understand the hybrid powertrain market for ships that meet defense equipment capability requirements. and Support (DE&S), because the solutions will be adapted to ships.
We are looking for solutions by ship, around electrification (AC as DC) and electrical storage. The solutions can be adapted to current ships and will not have a negative impact on their individual operational capacity. The preferable solutions will be economy of weight or neutrality.
On what types of vessels will the solutions have to be implemented?
mass of 65,000 tonnes at a speed of not less than 25 knots
weight of 6,900 tonnes at a minimum of 26 knots
weight of 7,350 tonnes at a minimum required speed of 32 knots
Do you have an in-depth understanding of the capabilities, technologies, initiatives, and new emerging approaches that may help us better understand the hybrid powertrain market? Submit an idea and help educate the UK Department of Defense (MOD) Naval Ship Support Central Engineering team on methods of reducing carbon emissions in the Royal Navy.
