Zero-emission electric boats

Marine engineers, Ecomar Propulsion and the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS), operated by the University of Strathclyde, have kicked off an ambitious R&D project aimed at bringing the manufacture of key parts used in zero-emissions electric boats to the UK. Funded by the Scottish Inward Investment Catalyst Fund, the project seeks to bring production to Scotland and overcome a global supply chain shortage of electric outboard motors, which are currently made in Japan. Ecomar has set a goal to reduce maritime greenhouse gas emissions by 10 million tonnes within 10 years.
