In conjunction with specialist Italian company e-Motion, Integrity Motor Yachts can now provide a full diesel/electric ‘hybrid’ propulsion and house power system that’s been specifically designed for any model in the full displacement range.
With every Integrity sedan having a large flat roof that’s ideally suited to solar panels, new generation Lithium batteries having safe energy storage capability and every marina having shore power facilities that is the equivalent of a charging station, the diesel/electric hybrid power systems have never been a move viable solution to consider for those who are looking to invest in a greener future.
Managing Director Bruce Scott says “from our teams’ investigations we believe the eMotion parallel system is the right choice when looking for an electric solution that integrates both house power & alternate electric propulsion systems for your new Integrity.”
In very simple terms, the e-Motion system enables the vessel to operate in five modes:
1 – Full Diesel Traditional Propulsion:
In this mode, the vessel can be operated even if the Hybrid is completed off in any component hardware & software;
2 – Zero Emission Navigation Mode:
In this mode, the internal combustion engine is off, only the high voltage batteries supply power to the electric propulsion motor which is direct coupled to the diesel engine. (Navigation at Zero Emission);
3 – House load Zero Emission Mode:
The vessel can stay at anchor full operative with the Diesel off. All necessary power is provided by Lithium-ion batteries;
4 – Navigation Battery fast charge:
This function is available in neutral position at anchor. The electric motor is attached in parallel (with integral clutch unit) between the main diesel engine and the gearbox and becomes a generator to recover the power for the house load and charges the batteries to 90% in as little as 25 minutes;
5 – Shore Power Battery Charge:
The vessel on shore power charges the Lithium-ion batteries overnight (slow charge). Save fuel for the next day at anchor.
