Danfoss Editron delivers hybrid propulsion system for new superyacht

Engineering group Danfoss Editron  will deliver the hybrid drivetrain system for new Bering 145 superyacht. The 45m-long model of Turkish yard Bering Yachts is expected to be ready for delivery to the unnamed customer in 2022. The new vessel design will feature a master bedroom and a further five guestrooms, accommodation for the 12-person crew, as well as dedicated dining, entertainment and lounge areas.

Danfoss Editron’s system will contain power take-off and power take-in machines, converters, grid solutions for the AC network and DC/DC systems connected to the yacht’s batteries, all of which will operate via a DC-cabinet and be controlled by the electronic control system. The system will be configured so that the energy flow can go to and be taken from all directions, such as from the generator and motor to the grid or alternatively from the grid to the yacht’s batteries. When operating in hybrid mode, the Bering 145 will have a range of over 12,000 nautical miles at an average cruising speed of 9 knots and be capable of docking and mooring.
