Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center is all set to host this week’s (November 2 & 3, 2022) Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo North America 2022 – the only event in the US exclusively focused on the electrification and decarbonization of ports and vessels, where visitors can source the suppliers and technologies required to ensure a cleaner and safer shipping sector free from harmful emissions.

Leading names across the exhibition floor include ABB, Siemens Energy, GE Power Conversion, BAE Systems, Freudenberg e-Power Systems, Glosten, Wärtsilä, Volvo Penta and Cavotec, to name just a few (see full exhibitor list) of the pioneering companies showcasing complete propulsion systems. Others are demonstrating the components and know-how required to successfully achieve the transition to electric, hybrid and alternative fuel solutions.
Innovation and engineering excellence can be found at every turn, with early exhibitor highlights including the latest from Kreisel Electric, which will demonstrate how the cells in its battery packs are immersion-cooled by a specially developed dielectric thermal management fluid from Shell, to ensure safety; Maritime Partners, which is building the M/V Hydrogen One (H2One) – a methanol-fueled/hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered towboat; and Navtek, which will showcase the technology behind its fully electric, zero-emission, fully rechargeable battery-powered tugboat, which has completed more than 850 days of operation since its launch in 2020.
