48 V Parallel-Hybrid

This system is ideal for cruising or manoeuvring (especially at low speeds) when a traditional ship’s main engine is installed.

The drive engine is mounted parallel to the existing shaft. Minimal modification to the shaft may be required to attach the pulley/drive belt. By simply pressing the REGEN button, the battery bank can be recharged when the main engine is running.
This system is for ships with a traditional combustion engine/gear.

Electric parallel-hybrid motors from Fischer Panda

Fischer Panda offers the electric motors as parallel hybrid versions. These are suited for operation as auxiliary drives. Electromagnetic coupling is available. They are easy to install, economical, and very quiet. They can often be operated on protected waters where the operation of a combustion engine is prohibited. Sailing yachts with a fixed propeller can let the propeller rotate (drag) to recharge the batteries.
