Our Hybrid Service

Build of the amperetta HYBRID-DRIVE

A conventional marine diesel engine is connected to one of our hybrid modules on its output shaft. The modules consist of a separating clutch and a high-performance electric motor. Our HCM (hybrid control module) controls whether the clutch is closed or opened. The electronics use power from the battery for the electric motor when driving or, when the diesel engine is running, flow back into the battery from the electric motor (which then serves as a generator) and recharge it.
