Hybrid Ready Marine Transmission
Twin Disc hybrid propulsion systems combine electric motors and diesel engines, enabling switching between the two or using both for a power boost. Electric operation, practical at low power and speed, cuts fuel use and emissions. Hybrid uses include vessels with long waits between jobs (tugboats, pilot boats); those regularly operating at slow speeds (patrol boats, survey vessels); and those whose low full-power requirements let them rely on less costly diesel plus power boosts.
