Transfluid Hybrid Marine Propulsion

Kraft Power offers complete marine hybrid propulsion systems – perfect for Propeller or Jet applications

The TRANSFLUID hybrid marine system is made up of the following TRANSFLUID products:
• SAE multi-disc clutch system, to connect and disconnect the internal combustion engine
• Solenoid clutch-control valve
• Single or multiple auxiliary drive box
• Permanent magnet electric motor (max 35kW or 47hp) with motor or generator function
• Lithium batteries with battery management system
• Display panel and control lever
• Power options for full electric power are from 20kw to 150kw

The hybrid system enables you to sail at normal cruising speed with a traditional Diesel engine as well as allowing you to sail in protected areas with zero emissions and in ports or marinas where silence and reduced pollution are well appreciated. During inshore navigation the silent propulsion enhances enjoyment of the landscape and, when anchored, there is no need to keep the engine running to use on-board facilities, thus avoiding disturbing the calm of the surroundings.
Hybrid navigation allows different uses: in the Electric mode you can sail at low speeds without emissions, while navigating on Diesel engine mode you can fully exploit the power of the combustion engine. And you can decide whether or not to insert the battery recharge mode by simply pushing a button on the control panel. The Booster option adds electric motor power output to the combustion engine power output and not only when on full power but also in intermediate power output where it is possible to get the best out of the rotation speed of the Diesel engine while using the electric motor only for small accelerations or changes in speed.

The system is so compact it can be used on multiple applications and installed in different ways. It is so flexible that it makes the boat unique in its kind, ensures a considerably reduced fuel consumption of no less than 15% while navigating on combustion engine power, without causing acoustic and atmospheric pollution.
The MPCB management system and display panel is a device developed by TRANSFLUID, both in the hardware and software, able to manage the different modes of the hybrid system: Diesel, Electric, Booster and Generation, as well as integrating the information of other components and supervising the overall diagnostic system.

100% Electric propulsion systems are available as well.  Please contact us to discuss your hybrid-electric vessel!
