Danfoss Editron has been selected to provide a hybrid drivetrain system for a new Bering 145 superyacht, a transoceanic vessel featuring latest technology, which will be ready for delivery in 2022.

Danfoss Editron is working with Marinel, its system integrator in Turkey, on the project. Marinel is an electrical consulting company that specialises in the design and application of shipboard power distribution and automation systems. Danfoss Editron’s system will contain power take-off and power take-in machines, converters, grid solutions for the AC network and DC/DC solutions connected to 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 from the grid to the yacht’s batteries.

When operating in hybrid mode, the 45m Bering 145 will have a range of over 12,000 miles at an average cruising speed of 9 knots. With reduced noise, space and weight savings and lower fuel consumption, Danfoss Editron’s hybrid system will offer smooth operation and an overall improved passenger experience to Bering 145’s owners once delivered.

Danfoss Editron Director, Marine business line, Erno Tenhunen, said: “Our compact electric motors offer high efficiencies, previously only seen in electric vehicles, to the marine propulsion market. Our electric propulsion motor product portfolio now goes up to 6MW, meaning that we can electrify larger ships and vessels than ever before.”

Alexey Mikhailov, President Bering Yachts, said: “We chose to work with Danfoss Editron because of the company’s sophisticated technology, which is compact, lightweight and highly efficient. It was essential for our customer that the company we selected to provide the yacht’s hybrid system had worldwide recognition and proven reliability, which Danfoss Editron does. We firmly believe that our first experience of working with the company will be pleasant and enjoyable and are already looking forward to working together on new projects in the near future.”

Marinel MD Özgür Akay said: “With the electric and hybrid drivetrain systems provided by Danfoss Editron, we provide our customers with solutions that fully meet their needs.”
