Kawasaki Hybrid Propulsion System

Kawasaki Hybrid Propulsion System

The “Kawasaki Hybrid Propulsion System” is the efficient solution for various kinds of ships.

Kawasaki Hybrid Propulsion System is the highly integrated propulsion system packaged with Kawasaki-made attractive marine machinery products such as engines, propellers, etc. Additionally, the motor/generator, inverter and energy storage module (ESM) in the system can convert propulsion power and electric power mutually.

The Kawasaki Hybrid Propulsion Technology can realize the optimized propulsion system configuration based on the efficiency map of engines and propellers. The distributions of electric power and propulsion controlled depending on the vessel operation. This approach is based on our superior technologies and knowledge off marine machineries acquired in the course of our continual innovation.


Applications for Tugboat

  • Reduction of exhaust gas emission
  • High efficiency and low emission combined with Kawasaki Green Gas Engine (pure gas engine)

Applications for AHTS

  • High efficiency propulsion control
  • Auto mode shift control
