Torqeedo will unveil new products at upcoming shows

Torqeedo will debut three new products for 2017.

Torqeedo will debut three new products for 2017 at the Electric and Hybrid Marine World Expo Florida Conference and Exhibition (Jan. 16-18) and to the public at the Miami International Boat Show (Feb. 16-20).

BMW's i3 high-voltage battery was adapted to work with Torqeedo's 40- or 80-hp Deep Blue systems. The prismatic cell design provides efficient cooling with an integrated compressor and even temperature distribution — all in a rugged and compact shock-resistant enclosure.

The 25-kW Range Extender was specifically designed to efficiently power Torqeedo's Deep Blue system. It's the first inverter generator capable of supplying electricity for yachts and supporting serial hybrid systems, the company said.

The combustion engine runs at its most efficient operating point, supplying the full 25 kW regardless of fluctuating load demands or the voltage level of the Deep Blue batteries. It does not require a separate starter. Instead, it uses the electric motor in the genset. This means reduced pollutants, less vibration and a longer life for the motor.

Torqeedo's Cruise FP fixed pod motor is an alternative to an inboard diesel engine and was Overall Winner of the 2016 DAME Design Award.

With new electronic throttles and a modern interface on a high-resolution marine display, it can be charged from shore power, solar, a generator or through hydro-generation while underway.
