HYBRID Peak shaving principle Black c


Huisfit is offering a wide range of "green" solutions to reduce the use of energy. Are you sailing a superyacht with 20th century technology? And keen to embrace all the latest hybrid technology benefits? A conversion by Royal Huisman’s Huisfit from conventional into hybrid is the ultimate systems upgrade with leading-edge propulsion and power generation.

Hybrid delivers exceptional lifestyle and environmental benefits including silent operation, zero emissions, peak-shaving, shaft-generated power under sail and reduced fuel consumption, together with enhanced operational flexibility and redundancy. As an example of its practical application, this hybrid system offers the potential of navigation in ‘zero emission’ zones such as the Norwegian fjords after 2026.

Royal Huisman is the shipyard that pioneered hybrid propulsion with the game-changing ketch Ethereal in 2009 (the world’s first hybrid superyacht) and has continued to refine its technological lead with the ‘NextGEN’ ketch Elfje and some remarkable new projects including the hybrid conversion of an undisclosed cutter and the 1993 ketch Juliet.
