Golden Silence: Why the real value in electric may be workspace safety.

Nov 12 2024

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM CST

Classroom 1

Electric propulsion is not a revolution, it’s a different tool with its own tradeoffs. If you focus on range limitation, you might overlook the positives that make electric drive a formidable tool in your belt. Near-silent operation can be a game changer in crew fatigue and communication. The fidelity of control you can achieve with electric torque makes precision piloting a breeze. The relief from idling diesel or petrol fumes yields cognitive clarity.

A collaborative effort led by Photon Marine puts these new tools to the test. Together with Silverback Marine and Sharrow Propellers we built a pilot vessel for the New York Power Authority and conducted a week-long test against an identical gasoline powered vessel. We’ll share the outcomes of that on-water study and the surprising feedback and lessons learned testing on the Erie Canal.
