THE FACTS ABOUT ELECTRIC POWER, BATTERIES AND PROPULSION

Today's electric motor technology has already moved from the open road to the open ocean.

INSTANT HIGH TORQUE

Electric motors are in constant ‘stand by’ mode; you can engage the control lever at any time for instant forward or reverse propulsion.

Electric motors achieve instant torque with Electromotive Force while internal combustion engines need to build RPMs gradually by increasing piston firing frequency.

GENERATORS

For those interested in a hybrid solution, generators are a highly efficient way to extend range while at sea.

DC generators have the advantage of rapid recharging capability.

AC generators are, generally, smaller and even portable which means that the generator can be aboard only in situations where longer motoring might be required.

HYDRO
GENERATION

 

At sailing speeds over 6 knots Oceanvolt systems are able to generate significant power for recharging the battery bank by activating at the touch of a button.

Power regeneration increases exponentially with each additional knot of speed.

RECHARGING

Battery recharging is accomplished with shore connection, hydro generation (an integrated part of all Oceanvolt systems) and/or solar panels.

In Hybrid solutions, a generator (either AC or DC) can be used to recharge batteries / extend motoring range.

BATTERIES

Lithium Ion batteries are

superior to other battery storage technology; highest storage capacity, high effective current delivery, high charge capacity resiliency and wide temperature range performance.

Oceanvolt highly skilled technical team ensures proper installation and system-optimisation. Only the highest quality Li-Ion batteries are used - to ensure performance and safety.

INTEGRATED
COMPONENTS

It is essential that all system components are properly selected and installed.

Our team of highly skilled technicians ensure that all components are compatible

and that system management software is optimised.
