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.
