July 2018, "Natalia" in commission
Out latest Hybrid Barge has been launched and is now in commission. Operating in the Burgundy region of France, Natalia is designed to take 55 passengers on sightseeing trips of the canal system. This vessel can cruise for 5 hours on electric drive while running a 10kVA air-conditioning plant.
The vessel is fitted with twin Beta 105hp parallel hybrids with 20kW electric drive / 15kW generation capability per engine. Speed under engines is 15 km/h and 9km/h under electric drive. This system has been designed for extended operation at an average speed of 5km/h in restricted waters.
Natalia is a Multimode Hybrid offering both serial and parallel operating modes. A battery bank of 300 kWh gives extended operation under electric drive and the 6kW solar array provides the majority of the energy required for the air-conditioning plant
June 2018, Margaret Wroughton II, fit out well under way
A beautiful 20M Dutch barge is under construction by Tristar boats at Redhill Marina. She is having a Beta 105 Hybrid installed together with a 17kVA generator and 60kWh of batteries. This craft is a plug in hybrid with both parallel and serial modes of operation.
Come and see ust at METS. We will be exhibiting a Beta 105 fitted with our latest "V twin" hybrid. Our systems are custom designed for commercial and leisure barges up to 38M. Drop by stand 03.401 and learn about some of our exciting projects.
Beta 105 with "V twin" Hybrid providing 20kW electric drive and 15kW generation capability
We have now upgraded all our systems to brushless, liquid cooled, motor technology. This will reduce servicing requirements and enable systems with even higher power capability. Please contact us for further information.
Hybrid marine announce serial production of its range of Yanmar based Hybrid systems.
In close collaboration with E.P. Barrus (UK) we have developed a range of hybrid systems based on Yanmar Marine engines. In late December 2014 the first two systems were shipped to ISARA Yachts, a Taiwan based boat builder. The ISARA 45 is a luxury sailing catamaran with a very high specification. The dual hybrid systems fitted provide over 100hp of engine propulsion power, 20kW of electric drive and 20kW of generation capability. This installation enables electric cooking and air conditioning onboard. Regeneration under sail supports all the vessels power requirements and provides "go anywhere" luxury for the discerning yachtsman. The ISARA range of yachts are specified with Hybrid Marine systems a standard.
We are working with a number of builders who are developing hybrid craft and hope to make further announcements later this year.
The "Power Station"
The "Power Station" combines a conventional Beta Marine engine (43, 50, 75 or 90hp) with a powerful brushless generator. At a typical cruising speed of 1,250RPM you can achieve normal propulsion and a full 5.5kW of electrical generation. The Generator can run while under way or with the engine in neutral alongside the bank.
The system uses this powerful generator in conjunction with a 48V battery bank and a 5kVA continuous (10kVA peak) charger/inverter. This provides enough power to have an all electric boat (eliminate gas and cook electric) and run all the domestic appliances you have at home.
The large amount of stored energy in the batteries and powerful inverter allows you to run all appliances with the engine cycled down. You can cook your Sunday roast, alongside the bank, in complete silence!
Select your battery bank size according to your needs and dawn/dusk charging, alongside the bank, can be eliminated. The powerful generator will soon charge your batteries the next time you are on the move.
When purchasing a complete packaged, for a new build narrow or broad beam, the price is similar to the conventional travel power option. With the many benefits provided this is a very compelling system to consider if you are planning your new boat.
A complete Power Station will be on display at Crick 2015 alongside our popular hybrid options.
