Hybrid Drive is not from a galaxy far far away, it’s here and it’s finally ready to make a change.
We’ve recently been chatting to Ingo, a sailor and engineer pushing the boundaries of propulsion systems in Catamarans. He’s been presenting his idea of smart hybrid systems for catamarans to various companies and naturally spoke to us about our Integrel Generator, here’s what he had to say:
“Furthermore, the company Integrel Solutions …. has been offering a 48 VDC LITE set for several weeks now. The 6.5 kW generator can be easily mounted to a Volvo D2-50,60 and 75 ranges with the included brackets. The comprehensive set is supplied exclusively with the matching Torqeedo Lithium-Ion batteries. They wrote that they have received several requests for such a smart hybrid system recently and that they are currently working at full speed on a generator bracket for other Volvo Penta engines. So my idea is in the spirit of the times and not utopian.”
