The electric engines are designed to be a direct replacement for a traditional diesel engine both in size and cost. Perfect for small coastal craft and inland waterway fleets that are looking to reduce both noise and emissions, the engines offer an efficient and reliable electric alternative. Energy Solutions offer the WW 10.0 Inboard for vessels up to 12m in length or 7.5 tonnes, equivalent to a 20 HP combustion engine. Already well established in the Netherlands, WaterWorld motors are a proven and tested option for fleet operators and private owners.
Explains Hugh Cunningham at Energy Solutions: “We see a great potential for the WaterWorld electric motors. This is an affordable electric option and easy to install – just one unit for motor and controller, no water cooling system and a direct connection to the shaft, without any gearbox.”As the demand on the marine industry grows to provide clean, quiet, as well as affordable alternatives to diesel engines the team at Energy Solutions are confident that the motors will satisfy boat builders and end-user requirements.
Concludes Hugh: “Energy Solutions offer a range of 48 volt chargers and inverter/chargers as well as lead acid and lithium batteries to complement the WaterWorld system. The efficiency of the drives mean that users will be able to get an excellent range from the systems as well as being easy to service and update – a real bonus for fleets.”WaterWorld are launching a range of larger models during 2019 extending the range and potential even further for owners. Energy Solutions will be working with WaterWorld to eventually distribute the entire range alongside the Dutch distributor De Stille Boot who will be providing sales and application support to the team.
