In cooperation with the Chair of Thermodynamics of Mobile Energy Conversion Systems (TME) of RWTH Aachen University and the South Korean holding corporation KSOE, the Teaching and Research Area Mechatronics in Mobile Propulsion (MMP) is evaluating different propulsion technologies.

It is examined if available technologies and methods from automotive development can also be transferred to electrified marine propulsion systems. In this way, the starting point for the development of sustainable, alternative propulsion concepts for maritime applications can be created in Europe.
