The Switch (a Yaskawa environmental energy company) in Finland, says it has developed a permanent magnet propulsion system and is pushing into the superyacht market as it ‘can push the frontiers of clean energy performance and open the door to Arctic exploration in comfort and with confidence’.
The Switch has one eye on the superyacht market, which itself is eyeing remote regions of the planet for luxury cruising. Being able to go emissions free is crucial especially to enable access to environmentally sensitive Arctic waters.
The Switch says is has delivered more than 1,300 of its Poseidon Power Drives purely for marine use and has sold more than 80 Poseidon Power permanent magnet shaft generators.
The Poseidon Power range, says the company, cuts emissions and works towards greater efficiency, increased reliability and superior flexibility over conventional propulsion systems. It offers superyacht builders the option to use diesel electric, hybrid or fully electric power propulsion and is a ‘near silent’ propulsion system, with low vibrations.
