Electric drive firm buys hybrid

ADVERTISEMENT

Germany-based electric drive manufacturer Torqeedo has acquired Moonwave Systems GmbH, a manufacturer of hybrid drives for yachts between 40 and 70 feet.



The newly developed hybrid systems not only provide hybrid electric propulsion, but will also power all AC and DC loads including air conditioning and large, home-style appliances. Green energy from regeneration and solar panels can be integrated into a vessel’s energy management system. Yachts equipped with the new hybrid drive system can travel silently, offer joystick docking and take advantage of noiseless, environmentally friendly energy sources while at anchor, the company said in a statement.



“Combining Moonwave’s state-of-the-art system developments with our high-tech propulsion systems, we can provide a fully integrated solution for propulsion and energy management,” said Christoph Ballin, CEO of Torqeedo. “All components have been designed to work together and have been tested in a complete system-setup.”



The products resulting from this alliance will initially be aimed at yacht manufacturers. Existing yachts can also be retrofitted with the new hybrid systems.
