Benetti 85' with Hybrid Electric propulsion will attend FLIBS
The first Benetti yacht equipped with Hybrid Diesel Electric propulsion has left the shipyard in Fano and is now crossing the Ocean on board Dockwise. The Benetti 85’ will be exhibited and viewable by appointment at the Benetti stand on the occasion of the next Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.
The Benetti 85-footer came into being in 2007 when the first vessel, "Legend" was displayed at the 17th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). Since then, there have been three 85-foot yachts under construction with the latest being named, "Farfallina".
The Hybrid electrical diesel system includes the use of the same components of the traditional propulsion to which we have added electrical motors with permanent magnets and relative "inverters" (frequency converters), which, connected to a controlling system, govern the shaftings with the main diesel motors being disconnected. The numerous advantages that have been obtained are measurable:
For more information:
- A reduction in noise;
- A reduction in the vibrations on board;
- An important percentage in the saving of consumption, equal to 40%;
- A positive environmental impact due to the reduction of emissions into the atmosphere.
