THE IDEAL ELECTRIC & HYBRID PLATFORMS
Electric-only and hybrid drive technologies are ideally suited to waterjets. The silence and economy of electric drive combine with the speed and range of diesel to offer the very best of both worlds.
As electrification sweeps across the marine industry, our waterjets and controls provide the perfect platform for the seamless integration of hybrid electric technologies.
- Extremely Efficient
- Incredibly Quiet
- Highly – Maneuverable
- Much Safe
OUR ELECTRIC HYBRID DEMONSTRATOR VESSEL
As electric hybrid integration specialists, you can choose the level of support you’d like from us. We’ll work with you in the way that best suits you – and your budget.
HamiltonJet’s electric and hybrid drive system is the culmination of our extensive waterjet knowledge and hybrid electric integration expertise.
EHX offers all the advantages of electric drive with the full capabilities of diesel. This unique system delivers lower CO2 emissions* combined with the speed, manoeuvrability, efficiency and safety of waterjets. With EHX, we deliver the electric motors, power electronics and control system, alongside specialist expertise to ensure seamless integration with the waterjets, engines, gearboxes or clutches.
The control system manages the hybrid energy flow between engines, batteries and motors while charging and discharging the batteries as required. A simple automatic setting enables effortless vessel operation in a manner similar to driving a hybrid car. Meanwhile, the manual setting delivers four different modes of operation – Diesel Only, Electric Only, Charging or Electric Boost.
When it comes to hybrid electric solutions “one size fits all” simply doesn’t exist. That’s why EHX is scalable to your vessel project with motors, battery capacity and components specifically selected to meet your needs. This ensures the lowest cost and best outcome for your project.
The same EHX system can also be configured for an electric-only vessel with the option for a fully integrated HamiltonJet solution.
