Marine transport is a critical means of moving people and goods around the littoral waters of Southeast Alaska. Unfortunately, it also generates significant harmful emissions. Tidelines Institute, a Southeast AK-based leader in environmental education and research, requires a more environmentally friendly propulsion system for their vessel, Tara. This project designed a serial hybrid propulsion system for Tara, furnishing Tidelines with a bill of materials, design documentation, implementation diagrams, CAD drawings, operational analysis software, and a life cycle assessment. This design will take advantage of the substantial hydro power resources in the region and help Tidelines be an agent of structural change.
