The quad engine design concept has a beam of 33.5 with a projected speed of 29 knots, fully laden.ThisconceptwillincorporateHam-ilton Jets parallel hybrid EHX system using Hamilton HTX waterjets, powered by quad MAN2862 LE 438 Tier 4 engines. The EHX system will allow for zero-emissions operations when using battery power and will enable both station keeping and slow speed operations, as well as boost power when needed. The vessel design concept is based on the MO1, built in 2013 to support the North Sea offshore wind market. The new concept design incor-porates substantial updates and modifications, with the hybrid power system among its most noteworthy. AAM believes that this design con-cept will prove itself in the fast-expanding U.S. offshore wind market.
