All models are engineered by a proven design philosophy that
is based on leading Classification (ABS, BV, DNV, GL, LRS, and RINA).t.
A lot of the savings are from only having to run one engine for a
long period of time. Normally a vessel will have to run two or
three engines at the same time. One or Two for propulsion and
one for electricity.
With epods, we can run just one generator and still swing two
props (ePods) and still have enough electricity remaining to
power up the rest of the vessel.
On a fishing vessel, I would be running one generator to get the
fishing grounds and then using two generators to drag the nets.
This save alot of money on fuel and maintenance.
