Fischer Panda UK’s broad range of hybrid and electric propulsion solutions will be on display at METSTRADE on the Fischer Panda (02.500) and Bellmarine (02.421) stands. Fischer Panda offer complete systems based around a choice of shaft motors, parallel hybrid drives or podded underwater motors, in addition to high voltage DC systems up to 100kW, capable of powering vessels with displacements of 40 tonnes or more. Bellmarine provide a choice of propulsion options for leisure and commercial craft, including shaft-, sail- and stern-drive motors, as well as control electronics to support them.
Hybrid drives have dramatically increased the demand for DC generators, and Fischer Panda’s whisper-quiet variable speed AGT range is ideally suited to the task. Using a DC generator increases efficiency by directly charging the batteries only as required, and through combination with one of Fischer Panda’s ‘plug and play’ hybrid systems – such as the 48V DC EasyBox – makes their hybrid solutions the simplest on the market to install, ideal for both boat builders and retrofits alike.
Fischer Panda UK will also be represented on the Parker Sea Recovery stand (11.101) in the Superyacht Pavilion, where a selection of watermakers – including those from HRO and Village Marine – will be on display. The company’s integrated mobile power solutions and smart digital switching systems will be represented by Mastervolt/CZone (stand 02.321), while Dometic’s air-conditioning systems and other products will be available to view on stands 07.131, 07.138, 07.143 and 07.147.
