Fossil free retractable thrust and generation systems for yachts.
The GREEN MOTION system eliminates fossil fuel used by sailing yachts in any way. Electrical energy is generated with the system and is stored in batteries (lithium Iron Phosphate are optional). It will generate sufficient energy to be used for propulsion, hot water, cooking and all electrical equipment and navigation on board. When batteries are fully charged or high speed is required (race) the lifted Motogens eliminate the drag from the propulsion system and this increases the speed of the yacht (between 5 – 15%).
The electric retractable Motogen is new, light weight, extremely efficient and better than any propulsion system ever designed for yachts. Usable in all sailing yachts from 30 to 90 ft (9-30 m): monohull, catamaran or trimaran). Installation can be made inside the hull in a monohull or on a retractable arm for multihull. 5 years of extensive testing has been done with a ‘proof of concept’ sailing in excess of 10.000 Nm.
Our catamaran the GREENCAT 445 ‘Green eMotion’ that was launched in December 2009 is the first demonstrator crossed the Atlantic early 2010 twice to do the final test of the Green-Motion retractable propulsion and generation system. Some more GREENCATS 445 with the Green-Motion system have been launched recently.
Our new design GREENCAT 605 was launched June 2012 with the new 20kW Green-Motion propulsion and generation system. This luxury-comfortable performance 61ft cruising catamaran is build in carbon with Twaron aramid reinforcement and is equipped with hydraulic operated swing keels.
