Recently, we profiled the use of eco-friendlysalmon skin upholstery in superyacht interiors, as well as the first self-sufficient zero carbon vessel.
Touting increased energy efficiecy and lower noise and CO2 emissions,Guido de Groot Design and Intec Marine are proposing two revolutionary concepts for propulsion. The Intec Marine hybrid propulsion concept makes use of the an electric propulsion setup powered by two generators. An additional smaller generator is installed for calm water/harbor conditions or at anchor.
Cruising the yacht out of the marina at 6 knots can be done using the batteries. The second generator is in place for redundancy purposes and needs to be started for the yacht to reach maximum speed. When at anchor, the smaller, third generator is used.
According to the designers, when compared to a conventional setup with three diesel engines continuously running (two for propulsion and one for interior load), a 30% reduction of use in energy can be achieved.
Yachts featuring Intec Marine hybrid propulsion will have aRINA marine green star design certificate for environmental excellence.
