Global marine solutions and systems integration firm, Høglund, has announced plans to expand its range of solutions for the battery and hybrid sectors.

Electrical contractor Acel and E. F. Invest will come on board as co-owners of Høglund Power Solutions, creating a one-stop shop for energy-efficient and future-oriented electrical power solutions.

Bengt-Olav Berntsen, who will head the new company as chief executive, said that developing new solutions to meet the IMO’s targets to reduce shipping’s carbon footprint needed to happen quickly.

“Generic solutions will not give owners the reliability, flexibility and confidence they need if battery and hybrid power is to become mainstream,” he said.

“It’s vital that systems integration partners are engaged from the first stage of any project to make sure that all elements in a hybrid vessel can work together, talk to each other, and that data from these systems can be easily accessed and transformed into value.”

Together with Høglund Marine Automation and Høglund Gas Solutions, the new company will give owners, operators and crew access to a full spectrum of automation, gas, and hybrid power services they need to ensure reliability and high performance in a transforming market.

Mr Berntsen comes to the role having led research and development at Høglund.
