The first stage of construction of the UK’s first hybrid pilot boat is nearing completion at Goodchild Marine Service’s yard near Great Yarmouth, with the shell of the vessel already bonded together.
Ordered by the Port of London Authority (PLA), the parallel hybrid boat will combine both diesel and electric power and has been designed to be completely emission free when operating in electric mode.
The vessel will be able to reach speeds of up to 15 knots in electric mode.
