21 – 23 June 2022, Amsterdam, Booth #1102, Hall 8
ePropulsion, a global leader and market challenger in marine electric propulsion systems and services, has unveiled the world debut of its first electronic inboard solution, the H-100, at this year’s Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo in Amsterdam, Europe from 21st – 23rd June 2022.
The H-100 widens the choice for sustainable boating solutions for boat builders and boaters across the world, and it was only apt for ePropulsion to launch it at the global exhibition which is dedicated solely to showcasing the very latest, next-generation electric and hybrid marine charging and propulsion technologies, components and solutions. It is also deemed to be the only exhibition and conference that will showcase emerging efficient technologies to an audience of shipowners and operators, boat builders, designers, naval architects, military fleet and port operators.
“We are delighted to introduce our first electric inboard solution at this year’s Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo and showcase our real-world electric alternative to traditional diesel power for operators and owners of larger vessels. This latest addition to our product range is yet another example that electric power can deliver a cleaner, more sustainable boating experience without compromising on performance and we are delighted to be part of such a pioneering event which is so focused on showcasing new technologies in such an important sector. We are proud to play our part in our industry’s quest to tackle climate change and are excited for this innovative new electric solution that is set to transform the inboard motor offering,” says Danny Tao, CEO at ePropulsion.
The H-100 is an innovative 100kw inboard motor, engineered for larger vessels with a full displacement up to 200 tons, that delivers high performance with less noise, fewer vibrations and zero exhaust fumes. Suitable for large sailing yachts, catamarans, small passenger ferries and trip boats, commercial workboats and large inland cruisers or barges, the drive system can be straight to propeller, stern drive, sail drive or Azimuth thruster.
The modular design means manufacturers can easily extend the range and power by adding motors, controllers and batteries, and having more flexibility. The intelligent system allows owners to control remotely, and different modes can be selected to adapt to different operating scenarios. A ‘Docking’ mode allows the throttle to be programmed to allow full throttle movement with reduced power input for enhanced low speed control. A ‘Syn’ mode is available to twin motor setups to match power input to both models. For extra convenience, users who pair the H-100 with ePropulsion’s HC-160-54 controller will be able to use DC power directly, negating the need to add a converter. The boating Internet of Things (IoT) system will enable owners to manage their fleet remotely and easily.
The launch of the H-100 is the next step in ePropulsion’s ambition to pioneer new technologies that propel the transition to a premium green boating experience. The new product will be suitable for various industries, including transportation, tourism, rescue and patrolling as well as cleaning, fishing and commercial markets, and it can also be applied to autonomous boats.
