Frydenbø Industri and Praxis Automation Technology are showcasing their Hybrid Propulsion solution at Nor-Shipping 2022. Recently, the fish farm support vessel MAUREL, built at PROMEK shipyard, was launched with this unique in-line hybrid propulsion train.
MAUREL has a unique hybrid electric propulsion layout with 2 Main Diesel Engines and CPP propeller, each shaft equipped with a 50kW Electric Propulsion Motor/Generator mounted between the diesel engines and gearboxes. The Propulsion Motor is powered by two DNV-GL approved 60kWh Energy Storage Systems. The batteries are charged using the Propulsion Motor as Shaft Generator, or from the ship’s shore power connection. The Propulsion Motors, Batteries, Inverters and Control Systems are developed and manufactured in The Netherlands by Praxis Automation Technology.
