A big part of our ethos at Integrel is the reduction of vessel emissions, sailing in a yacht with a generator running for power just seems prehistoric to us. We all enjoy being on the water but a change in how we enjoy our time on it, specifically sailing, is needed. Hybrid propulsion is one of those changes.
With our systems ability to generate electricity as you motor, Integrel eliminates the need for an onboard generator and with one less diesel consuming engine comes fewer emissions. Electric propulsion also has a long way to come before it can be counted as reliable on the open seas, that’s why the adoption of hybrid propulsion systems is a great step towards greener sailing in the meantime.
Our system also works as a great support to hybrid marine propulsion systems. Read about how Integrel fits into a Smart Hybrid drive system here: https://welt-ahoi.de/en/2020/10/08/smart-hybrid-drive-can-be-implemented-for-catamarans/
