Kawasaki Electric and Hybrid Propulsion Systems
Integrated system for ship propulsion
and power supply can achieve major
reductions in energy consumption
and CO2 emissions
Reduced CO2, as well as reduced energy consumption for propulsion and hotel load, can be achieved by the highly integrated propulsion system packaged with attractive marine machinery products such as gas engines, batteries, lithium-ion capacitors, and power conversion module, etc.
The system can offer significant efficiency improvement and lower emissions by switching various power sources according to ship operation, such as zero-emission battery propulsion when entering or leaving port, and mechanical propulsion with an focus on propulsion efficiency when cruising.
