Enhanced generation from Hybrid Marine
Hybrid Marine’s stand at Crick will show hybrid systems with new display units, remote monitoring and enhanced generation capability.
Visitors will be able to see, by appointment, a number of the company’s hybrid systems installed on boats and hybrid systems on Beta Marine and EP Barrus’ stands.
Hybrid Marine’s parallel hybrid system enables boaters to use electric drive for quiet and emission free cruising, with the full power of the diesel engine available when required.
Under engine drive, the motor will automatically configure itself as a generator. When travelling at standard canal speeds, every hour of engine propulsion will generate electrical energy sufficient for a further two hours of electric motoring.
Switching into quiet and non-polluting electric mode is attractive to canal users, especially when operating in locks or manoeuvring near moorings, explained Hybrid Marine’s Graeme Hawskley.
“Using the electric motor also means the propeller can spin at very low speeds giving improved slow speed control and users can accelerate from full forward to full reverse very quickly, making electric power ideal for manoeuvring,” he said.
Hybrid Marine supplies battery banks large enough to enable users to operate for days on electric power, reducing the need for and the cost of diesel fuel.
The company will also show examples of battery systems that have been in use for more than ten years.
“Using hybrid also means that boat owners do not need gas onboard, as they can use electric power generated by our systems for cooking,” Graeme added.
