Investment into cleaner, greener technology
Friday January 25th, 2019
Investment into cleaner, greener technology comes to Hampshire.
Hampshire based BAE Systems has announced a £3.5m commitment to develop greener and safer rechargeable electric propulsion systems.
The investment will fund the development of a new test and integration laboratory at the company’s Broad Oak site in Portsmouth, UK.
The research will build on the advances seen in electric cars and could signal a new generation of propulsion systems which will be cleaner, greener, safer, more powerful, longer lasting, rechargeable and, in some cases, even able to operate underwater.
£1m has already gone into concept and design work; 2019 will see the start of the build and integration phase of a demonstrator which is expected to be up and running by September 2020.
