To develop an open systems architecture which will make marine hybrid propulsion available to the widest possible market
To deliver more fuel efficient and sustainable propulsion and power options for small craft
To deliver systems which satisfy the market demand for increasing amounts of electrical power on board
To reduce the environmental impact of small craft by reducing fuel consumption and cutting noise and vibration

HYMAR – hybrid marine power for all
Optimised Hybrid Systems for small displacement vessels:
HYMAR is an EU supported, collaborative research and development project. Its aim is to develop state of the art marine hybrid systems for displacement vessels up to about 24m in length. HYMAR hybrid systems are being optimised for energy efficiency and are based on design principles which will allow any compliant equipment to be used regardless of supplier.
