Last week at the Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo in Amsterdam, our partners Transfluid and clean energy systems integrator Genevos won the 2022 Electric & Hybrid Propulsion System of the Year Award. The trophy recognises the important collaboration between the two companies in creating a complete hydrogen-electric propulsion system for the market.
Transfluid, a brand famous for its production of transmission units and electric motors, and Genevos, a leading marine fuel cell integration specialist, announced their partnership in February of this year and began working on a scalable zero-emissions propulsion pack by combining their expertise.
The new system combines Genevos’ recently AiP marine-certified Hydrogen Power Module range with Transfluid’s specialist batteries, electric motors, and transmissions. It will offer zero-emission propulsion solutions from 15 kW to 500 kW, allowing full customisation to individual vessel requirements. The partnership will also provide both hydrogen-electric and hybrid options, benefiting from the extended motoring range enabled by the marine fuel cells supplied by Genevos.
“Hydrogen is one of the most promising zero-emission fuels to avoid polluting the air we breathe daily.” Said Transfluid CEO Ugo Pavesi about the collaboration. “The partnership with Genevos enables us to combine our expertise with certified, proven and advanced technologies to meet zero-emissions maritime needs within the global market.”
The Electric & Hybrid Marine awards recognise and reward the latest breakthroughs, innovations and developments in the industry, covering various areas of electrification and decarbonisation technologies, with shortlisted entries judged by an international panel of journalists and experts from across the marine industry.
