Electric and hybrid propulsion

Environmental awareness and green focus are becoming increasingly important in the development of the products of the future and our product line.

SMART Hydrive® is a series of frequency converter solutions for electric and hybrid propulsion. The system gives great flexibility, and suits a wide range of vessel types. 

Future ready solutions

Hybrid and electric propulsion opens the doors to a wide number of energy sources. This means that vessels equipped with these sustainable solutions, are ready to meet tomorrows requirement for significantly reduction of emissions.

An early dialog with our customers gives us the best opportunity for finding the optimum solution. To do so, operational profile, available energy sources, flexibility and ROI are all important premise providers.
