In addition to launching its new fully rotatable Electric Turnable Saildrive, EPTechnologies is promoting a complete drop-in unit for shipyards at Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo, having recognized an opportunity to enhance yard efficiency, given how hard it is to find electricians and other specialists in the maritime field. Inside the drop-in unit, all components are pre-wired in 1-3 frames. It includes batteries, charger, DC-DC, junction box, controller and cooling. The frames can be custom-made to fit different needs and boats in series production, and the plug-and-play unit is pre-wired for easy installation.
The system ranges from 40-400kW and can be mounted on a shaft, Z drive or jet drive. It includes the lightest batteries on the market, has a highly efficient motor and controllers, touchscreen, mobile app and a stainless-steel throttle. Additionally, it includes electric gear shift mounting on Z or jet drive. Remote monitoring and troubleshooting during service and operation are available.
“As long-time sailors and boat owners, we are aware of the problems that can occur on a daily basis. Therefore, this system is well thought through to the smallest detail,” commented EPTechnologies marketing representative Anne Sorflakne.
