Hybrid Propulsion

SPEND TIME IN STANDBY MODE?

SEE ALL THE BENEFITS OF HYBRID PROPULSION

If your vessel spends the majority of its time in standby, position-keeping or low-speed transit modes, a conventional diesel-mechanic propulsion system may be costing you too much in fuel, maintenance and overall lifecycle expenses.

Hybrid propulsion systems give you the full diesel-mechanic power and performance you need in work mode — then let you switch to more efficient diesel-electric operation in other applications. The result? Higher average engine load, fuel savings, significantly reduced maintenance costs, increased uptime and a lot more.

 

Conventional or hybrid propulsion: Which one is right for you?

Take a closer look at how the two types of propulsion differ and explore which applications make the most sense for each system.
