MTU Hybrid PropulsionPack powers Sunseeker 133 yacht – First marine serial hybrid propulsion system
System supplier MTU started off a lighthouse project with long-term partner Sunseeker. The world’s first hybrid propulsion system combines optimum performance with maximum comfort.
Silent Mode creates zero emissions in port and offers maximum comfort as there is no noise, no vibration and no pollution. Operating hours are reduced because the diesel engines only run in attractive part of performance map, reducing CO2 and increasing efficiency and power.
Reliable, proven diesel engines are MTU’s core competency. Built into a standardized, modular and scalable propulsions system, this solution offers maximum flexibility with individual operation modes. A green, economical, powerful and innovative propulsion solution that’s truly fit for the future.
