PLA Hybrid Pilot Cutter Leader, sea trials


published on 4 June 2021 13 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "Skyshark Media". Originally published on 2021-06-03.
The plug-in diesel hybrid pilot boat's hull is be based on the established ‘ORC’ design, a unique ‘beak’ bow design, which gives it unmatched all weather capability and typically uses 40% less diesel per nautical mile than convention hulls. The batteries of the hybrid cutter are charged from existing shore power facilities while it’s alongside at the PLA’s Royal Terrace Pier in Gravesend.

The boat will run on batteries for approximately 40 nautical miles on one charge at speeds up to 15 knots. The diesel engines will boost top speed up to 19 knots and provide a backup to the electric propulsion for longer duty cycles.
