Alewijnse to Supply Hybrid Propulsion System for Amels 60 Yachts

Alewijnse Marine will deliver the electrical systems installation on the first two vessels of the new superyacht range, the Amels 60. Peak shaving technology with battery power is one of the key components of the contract.

The Amels 60 is the result of three years of research and development at Dutch superyacht builder Amels in Vlissingen, the Netherlands. Technically speaking, the sixty-metre long vessel combines innovative naval architecture with hybrid propulsion technology.

Future-proof Hybrid Propulsion

Alewijnse will deliver a total package of electrical installation and systems integration, encompassing an Integrated Bridge System, Audio-Video systems and IT network as well as the hybrid propulsion system.

‘This is an exciting contract for us in many ways,’ says Alewijnse Marine sales manager Dick Breure. ‘For example, in terms of technology, it contains some very significant elements. The future-proof hybrid propulsion system is of particular importance. Together with the peak shaving technology with battery power this will yield considerable reductions in fuel consumption and harmful emissions.’

Alewijnse is already well underway with the electrical engineering phase for the first Amels 60. The project will proceed into the production phase with a completion date scheduled for early 2022.
