“Armorel” is a Hallberg Rassy 42 which was
converted to hybrid propulsion earlier this year as part of the EU
funded “HYMAR” project. She is being used as a trials boat to
prove the latest developments in hybrid technology.
For propulsion, “Armorel” has a Steyr Motors
hybrid unit on the shaft. This uses an integral electric
motor to drive the boat to 6 knots after which the diesel engine
takes over. Once the diesel is running, the electric drive
motor becomes a generator and recharges the batteries.
Armorel’s propeller has been specially
designed by Bruntons and INSEAN to work as an efficient water
turbine when under sail. This forces the shaft to rotate,
generating all of the power the boat needs whilst at sea without
running the engine.
New energy sensors and a new hybrid control
system have been developed by Triskel Marine. Known as
“Jason”, this oversees the boat’s systems and is capable of fully
automating most operations. Display and control is on an iPad
Electrical storage is provided by a new
generation of lead acid batteries from Enersys; power conversion is
by Mastervolt, and thanks are due to Malo Yachts for their
pioneering early work.
HYMAR is managed by the International Council
of Marine Industry Associations.
