MIT goes “green” for Seawork 2017
This year at Seawork International, propulsion and driveline experts, Marine and Industrial Transmissions will be showcasing its new Hybrid and Electric driveline system, suitable for marine applications.
MIT has been designing, supplying and servicing transmissions and driveline systems across the UK since 1974, becoming a centre of excellence in driveline systems providing customers with full product life cycle support.
With hybrid and electric technology being a hot topic within the commercial marine industry, operators will be looking for cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions to ensure the future of their business.
This year at Seawork, MIT will be showcasing the Transfluid HM560 Hybrid and Electric driveline system, developed to suit commercial applications including; workboats, crew transfer vessels, pilot vessels and patrol vessels.
The HM560 is designed to be fitted on any internal combustion engine with a suitable SAE Flywheel and to any type of SAE standard transmission.
The system allows the user to work in three modes; electric propulsion, to drive at zero emissions in absolute silence. Engine propulsion, using the electric machine as a generator to recharge batteries, and booster, which allows the electric motor during acceleration to assist engine – providing extra torque to the driveline.
This technology has already been heavily adopted within Europe, with over 10 boatyards already installing the system into their applications, with the hybrid module already installed into 13 single engine craft and five twin-engine craft, as well as German manufacturer BAVARIA choosing the Transfluid solution as a partner to launch its first displacement boat with hybrid propulsion.
For 2017 “green” solutions are high on the agenda for MIT, who along with the Transfluid hybrid system, will also be showcasing the Twin Disc “QuickShift EC300DP, power commander electronic control system complete with Dynamic Positioning interface”.
At Seawork 2017, MIT will also be discussing standard marine drivelines and propulsion systems offered across its product portfolio, including marine transmissions, single and multiple pump drives, standard and hybrid marine transmissions, anti-vibration systems, boat steering systems and air compressors.
MIT will also be launching its new website at Seawork 2017, designed to deliver an improved user experience and an enhanced product selection tool.
For more information, meet with the MIT team in the Pacific Orange hall, stand PO5, along with ATZ Marine Technologies, part of the same group of companies.
