2018 will be the 20th consecutive year of exhibiting at Seawork for MIT.

With tightening emissions regulations within the industry, MIT says operators are looking to reduce their carbon footprint with sustainable alternatives to diesel power, whilst reducing operating costs and engine maintenance.

And MIT will have a range of products on display designed to help this demand.

Transfluid’s electric/hybrid driveline system allows operators to work in three specific modes: electric propulsion, engine propulsion - using the electric machine as a generator to recharge batteries and booster - which allows the electric motor during acceleration to assist the engine and providing extra torque to the driveline.


The system can be fitted to any transmission such as marine gear boxes, hydrostatic transmissions, cardan shaft and water jets and has an approved engine power of up to 1100kw (1475hp), with the electric motor reaching 400kw.

E-steer, a plug-and-play technology developed by Twin Disc offers users features such as dual bus technology, adaptive steering and dynamic rudder control.

E-steer was designed for both operators and boat builders and is an ideal partner to any propulsion system.

Mount technology

The technology has redundancies built into the steering system, ranging from basic with dual bus technology to full redundancy. Each control has two CAN-bus communication links between devices and primary and secondary power inputs, with alarms for loss of either supply.

The latest mount technology from Rubber Design, the TT1X is a high-performance torque thrust mount.

It was designed specifically for increased acoustical demands and broadens the bandwidth of load-capacity.

Performance and reliability

The mount uses new, patented technologies, to increase its performance and reliability.

In addition, MIT, in collaboration with Goodchild Marine Services will this year feature on the Seawork conference agenda, exploring how moving away from diesel power can aid the work-boat sector.
