Abstract : In this report the advantages and disadvantages of electric ship propulsion compared to mechanical propulsion are discussed and the question is raised what will be the influence of the application of superconductors. Detailed description is given of the superconductors themselves and the various applications as superconducting motors and generators, electromagnetic propulsion and magnetic energy storage. Two examples of ships with a superconducting propulsion system are described. Finally, future developments are discussed, conclusions are drawn and four proposals for future studies are formulated. Superconductivity, Ship Propulsion.
