Cutting-edge hybrid boat built by a P.E.I. company goes to its new home in New Brunswick

The vessel and the green technology were developed by P.E.I. engineering company Aspin Kemp & Associates.  The lobster boat is called Hybrid One. Company CEO Jason Kemp said making a hybrid system work in smaller fishing vessels has been a challenge. “Because on the bigger vessels, a million dollar or multi-million dollar system can be justified as a cost, where on a small fishing vessel, it’s not. So we had to take a couple of decades of learning, and apply that to this concept to get those costs down and shrink the physical size of it down to integrate it into the repulsion system,” he said. Panmure Island lobster fisher Dana Lavers has been testing out the vessel for Aspin Kemp for the past few months. Photos,>click to read< 10:49
