Hybrid For Pleasure Crafts

By Roberta Prandi19 June 2019

FPT Industrial premiered at the Venice Boat Show 2019 (from 18 to 23 June) an hybrid module for recreational crafts, composed of FPT’s N40 E diesel engine and an HM 560 electric propulsion module by Italian manufacturer Transfluid.

FPT’s 3.9-L four-cylinder inline marine diesel delivers up to 186 kW at 2800 r/min and is compliant with the most stringent European emission standards for inland waterways (IWV Stage 5 regulations) for the power ratings of 127, 112, 75, 63 kW at 2800 rpm. 

Transfluid’s electric module includes a lithium battery bank to power the electric motor that has an electrical power output of up to 35 kW at 3000 r/min.

The hybrid module is ideal to cruise in electric mode through protected areas or in sensitive marine environments. The diesel mode is intended for safe long-distance navigation, during which the batteries can be recharged.
