Why amperetta?

With a history in automotive engineering and extensive and proven understanding of development processes of hybrid systems, the founder wanted a similar system in his boat. Back to the drawing board and a new start with the assumptions learned from hybrid car development. A translation to the marine industry was born.

The knowledge, the German, well known, quality levels and a skilled team of engineers built the ultimate modular hybrid system with the following high lights.

  • Flawless integration in your current boat system for your careless use.
  • Intuitive use through your main throttle, supported with specific amperetta controls.
  • Extremely easy to maintain at a minimum of costs.
  • Under review of CE & DNV certification to prove our quality.

Special features by amperetta Hybrid

The most prominent is a decrease in air pollution if you compare it to traditional combustion engines.

But…….

Did you also think of the many other advantages?

  • Friendly (silent) departures & approaches in harbors and locks?
  • Extended lifetime of your fuel driven engine
  • Extended maintenance on your fuel driven engine
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Having your own redundant propulsion system on board (safe feeling, right?)
  • Use intuitive, just like your hybrid car.
  • Enjoy those memorable moments with family and friends hearing no other than nature around you…

Hydraulic system

This makes the electric engine engage or disengage. It’s a normally closed clutch powered by an hydraulic pump and cylinder that ensures that the combustion engine will always work, in any case, independent from the amperetta Hybrid-Drive system.

Key Facts:
Voltage 12 V
Current
IP-Rating 69K
Power
Weight 2 kg
Dimensions (LxWxH) 280 x 192 x 74 mm
Volume 4 l

Hybrid module

This is your drive that gives you propulsion besides your combustion engine (CE), in your in-board boat propulsion system. It runs in line with the CE on one shaft, for a parallel hybrid solution. It will be fitted between CE and gearbox or in other occasions CE and saildrive or z-drive.

This way you can run Hybrid Mode with automatic transition between Electric Mode and Combustion Mode or pure electric and Combustion Mode. In Hybrid and Combustion Mode you have the benefit of regenerating power through the amperetta module into your batteries.

Key Facts:
Voltage 400 V
Current 180 A

Power 20 kW
Torque 170 Nm
Weight 46.1 kg
Dimensions (LxWxH) 342 mm x 319 mm x 214.5 mm
Volume 11.7 l

Inverter

This drives your amperetta Hybrid Module. It takes direct current from the batteries and converts it into the three-phase alternating current, the drive needs to perform it tasks. It works also the other way around and allows charging your batteries.

Voltage 400 V
Current 200 A
IP-Rating 69K
Weight 8.5 kg
Dimensions (LxWxH) 355 x 230 x 135 mm
Volume 11 l

DCDC Converter

This unit is dedicated to convert the 400 V of the batteries to the 12 V of the amperetta service batterie that runs the amperetta system autonomous from the other board electronics. This component can be customized in order to have the abilities for solar or wind powered input.

Key Facts:
Voltage 400 V to 12 V
Current up to 72 A
IP-Rating 67
Power 1.2 kW
Weight 2 kg

Volume 4.5 l

Cooling System

It’s a dual circuit liquid cooling solution with one loop running with glycol-water mixture and the other loop is seawater/freshwater, running through an heat exchanger. The two pumps, filters and multiple sensors give status on each component and the cooling capacity. If wanted there can be a secondary heat exchanger for the gearbox be implemented.

IP-Rating 67

Batteries

The base system is 10 kWh (eq. 5 modules in series), more is possible as well (will be set in parallel), depending on the national regulations there might be a fire extinguishing system required, wich the modules are prepared for.. We can also work with other batterie solutions from other manufactures as long as they have their own Batterie Management System (BMS), fit our specifications and are conform to local regulations.
