You can add solar panels to your boat and integrate them with our system in the future as an option. However, the limited surface area on a boat, plus the additional weight of the panels may reduce the effectiveness of adding solar panels. Therefore, for optimal speed and range, we recommend that one use land-based
Krensen’s computerized engine controller can be set with parameters that match the stern drive’s torque ratings. Retaining the existing propeller is most likely an option, as the computerized engine controller and electric motor can be selected to match rpm and torque. However, changing the propeller may be desirable in order to achieve increased operational efficiency.
We have regional partners for retrofitting. Contact us for more information.
Krensen®’s standardised turn-key system can be used in both new and used boats.
The inboard 400 hp system is available now to order in Norway and Europe in 2021. The outboard 150 hp will be available in Norway spring/summer 2021 and selected European markets towards the end of 2021. We are moving into the North American market in 2022 and the rest of the world from 2023.
ICE stands for an Internal Combustion Engine. The majority of marine inboard and outboard engines are ICE.
This is fully dependent on the boat and the size of the system that you put in it. However, with today’s battery technology you can expect between 25 to 50 nautical miles at a planing hull speed. At a slower speed, below hull speed (approximately 5 knots for a 25-footer), this range can be quadrupled.
This is fully dependent on the boat and how big a system is installed. As a general rule, you can expect a higher top speed than with your current ICE installation.
Unlike ICE, the full torque of an electric motor can be available from 0 rpm (depending on your programming choices). Thus an electric propulsion system allows you to achieve a plane with your boat more efficiently and faster.
Electric propulsions systems are highly reliable. The reason for this is the simplicity of an electric motor linked to our marine electric management system. Simply put, our system has four moving parts, whilst on average a combustion engine has over 2000 parts. This explains how Krensen® can achieve a highly reliable and robust system.
