Industry Overview

A marine hybrid propulsion system features both, a diesel engine and an electric motor for propulsion. Electric auxiliary power is generated by diesel generators sets. The electric motor can also act as a generator, through which the generators can produce less power. However, the main engines should then provide this power. Marine hybrid propulsion system is a new type of dynamic form. The hybrid propulsion system has been widely used in passenger ships, marine work ship and public service and so on. For different types of ships, the propulsion system of the host type and number, transmission mode, gear box device, the number of shaft and bearing as well as the propeller device models and numbers are not the same.

Marine hybrid propulsion systems are gradually emerging as one of the most preferred clean propulsion systems, globally and are being used in several vessel categories. One of the major advantages of using hybrid propulsion systems is their clean and efficient mechanism, which significantly lowers emissions as compared to conventional propulsion systems. Features such as silent maneuvering, emission-free operations, and lower degrees of fuel consumption have prompted vessel and towage operators to invest in this technology. Development of the technology originating from the hybrid automotive industry, has assisted technology developers in designing efficient and economical marine hybrid propulsion systems. Marine hybrid propulsion systems are designed to use two independent drive systems for propulsion: a diesel engine and an electric motor, where electric power is generally stored in batteries or a super capacitor. The system utilizes the unused capacity of the main diesel engine to generate electricity and store it in batteries for later use.
