The cumulative effects of all of our vessels operating on the marine environment is for the most part unknown. What we do know is that our CO2 emissions, the biocides and heavy metals leaching from our antifoul, as well as general waste that all find its way to the ocean needs to stop.
Established over a decade of advanced power engineering, with continual research and development, and several industry firsts, we have built an incredible supply chain. As we journey we gain new friends, and forge new alliances, our clients and suppliers alike share a common ethos, and our roadmap is clear; we have to protect our ocean.
The NDMP team can assist you with battery choice, removing LPG, all the way through to adopting hybrid, or full electric propulsion. Every system that we produce has advanced monitoring, a vital key component to understanding your new power delivery system, and ensuring you are always fully in control.
If you would like to know more about the technology we use, how you can adopt it, as well as the conservation work we are involved with ,please send us a message below.
Nazca is our research vessel, a Contessa 34 offshore one design.
Using only the renewable resources available to her with an auxiliary electric motor, she sails diesel-free as a beacon for change, testing emerging green technologies, whilst undertaking marine science expeditions.
With home ports in Falmouth and North Devon, she is demonstrating a new era of marine power. Equipped for offshore, Nazca is self sufficient and on a green mission for the ocean.
Muhuhu is a 1980's Oyster Mariner 35.
She was converted from diesel to electric propulsion over the winter 2020. She's a heavy blue water design with a large internal volume, not fast, but keeps her crew safe and dry!
She's an ideal platform for data collection, wildlife observation, and exploration. Her home port is Plymouth, Devon and can be seen flying the NDMP flag all around the West Country.
A ship wide refit when preparing this 74ft yacht for Emily Penns round the World eXXpedition to study ocean plastic. Remote monitoring allows us to advise and develop measures to further reduce their carbon footprint.
This is the first ever UK passenger ferry powered by Hydrogen, operating in Bristol Harbour. The work we undertake to reach net zero requires new thinking, this powertrain and the team behind it are a key NDMP partner.
We are here to help. From precision battery monitoring, to a complete refit. With 1000's of miles under us using only wind and solar we can advise on operation and technology, so you can make an informed choice.
SV Wildheart is a RTW adventurer. A complete LiFePO4 upgrade with a full monitoring and solar package. Her owner self installed with our guidance, one of our "assisted build" formats, a method we encourage for expedition sailors.
A Bavaria 44 with a system wide upgrade. Shifting from AGM to LiFePO4, LPG to electric cooking, optimising the inboard to take a second 5kW alternator and adding solar and wind, the boat sails with significantly less impact.
A beautiful example of a Sadler 25. Now trialing a new type of hybrid powertrain, aimed at vessels that do not have a regular dock to plug into, a key next step in order to decarbonise our harbours, ports and coastal waters.
We are accelerating the shift away from fossil fuels. As we roll out an electric revolution for maritime, we are poised to look forward, and provide for our future.
In collaboration with Auriga Energy, using their Hydrogen Fuel Cell evolved from the highly successful Hydrogenesis project in Bristol harbour, we are adopting the technology to provide range extension for our research yacht, SV Nazca, trialling in the challenging waters of the Bristol Channel as a proof of concept. Research that lays a foundation for a new era of maritime power.
We are creating a global vision from within the North Devon UNESCO Biosphere reserve to help create a greener world.
Are you planning a diesel to electric conversion? Or do you have a new idea to stem the tide of pollution? Drop us a message, we'd love to hear from you!
If you are based in South Wales and would like to be involved, please send us a message. If you are positive, fun, ambitious and driven to make a difference, come on board!
We undertake unique sailing expeditions, coastal and offshore, this provides access to areas of the environment not easy to reach. If your research is within our sailing area and we can help, please reach out and get in touch.
