Baumüller founds the company Marine Hybrid Solutions AS (MHS) in Norway with Anlegg og Marine Service and Nogva Holding to further promote the development and use of low-emission ships.
Baumüller Anlagen-Systemtechnik GmbH & Co. KG, system house of the Baumüller Group, has founded the new company Marine Hybrid Solutions AS (MHS) together with Anlegg og Marine Service and Nogva Holding. The headquarters of MHS is located approx. 80 km south of Oslo in Tønsberg/Vestfold, Norway. The CEO of the new company is Børge Nogva, who has many years of experience in shipbuilding.
Marine Hybrid Solutions AS focuses on marine propulsion systems in Norway with all-electric solutions and diesel-electric hybrid propulsion systems. MHS has set itself the goal of bringing new and improved solutions to the market in order to meet the increasingly stringent requirements for ship operation. For example, the ships of the future will be able to access multiple energy sources such as fuel cells, batteries, solar cells, wind turbines and engines powered by alternative fuels.
Another focus is on digitalization. Cloud-based IoT solutions paired with intelligent automation solutions and artificial intelligence (AI) are intended to make ship operations more efficient and sustainable. "Our partners' many years of marine expertise help us to offer additional targeted solutions for the marine sector. The joint venture enriches us enormously," says Thomas Scholz, Head of Sales and Member of the Management Board at Baumüller Anlagen-Systemtechnik GmbH & Co. KG.
