MAN Smart HYBRID Experience

GREATEST POSSIBLE DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY AND TOTAL FOCUS ON CUSTOMER NEEDS

With the new marine hybrid system from MAN Engines, we are extending the range of options for designing marine drive systems. The customer decides, then we perfect it. The modularity of our hybrid systems is the factor that enables us to meet the wide range of drive requirements. That applies equally to yachts and work boats.

MAN Smart HYBRID Experience provides the best drive solution in every case. Thanks to the flexible combination of diesel engines and electric motors and the addition of components such as batteries and/or on-board units, the MAN Smart HYBRID Experience allows the degree of hybridisation to be flexibly configured and optimised.

THREE DIFFERENT SYSTEM DESIGNS

PERFORMANCE

Pure emotion and untamed power. Maximum power when it is needed

COMFORT

First-class driving experiences, virtually silent and low-vibration driving pleasure

EFFICIENCY

A sustainable increase in efficiency with regard to operating costs and extended service intervals

A UNIQUE HYBRID SYSTEM FROM ONE SINGLE SYSTEM SUPPLIER

MAN Engines is the first engine supplier to offer a complete, perfectly aligned and tested hybrid system from a single source:

(Sales) Engineering

MAN Engines assists customers from the very start of the planning and concept phase, through development, and all the way to the intensive installation consulting and technical implementation phases.

Components

The diesel engines and electric motors, gearbox and clutch, batteries, power electronics and on-board voltage are synchronised to perfection.

After Sales

When it comes to spare parts, servicing, training and maintenance, MAN Engines, as a system supplier and market leader, has extensive expertise and a comprehensive understanding of the entire system.

“THE WHOLE IS MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS” (ARISTOTLE)

SCALABLE PERFORMANCE THANKS TO A MODULAR CONCEPT

Up to 2,500 hp per driveline (1,838 kW)

V12 for yachts
V12 for work boats
In-line six-cylinder for yachts
In-line six-cylinder for work boats

The MAN Smart HYBRID Experience draws on the entire engine portfolio of MAN Engines. As such, V12 (D2862), V8 (D2868) and in-line six-cylinder engines (D2676) ranging from 1,471 kW to 290 kW (2,000 hp to 394 hp) are available in the current series.

This, in turn, enables overall system outputs ranging from 474 kW to 1,838 kW (644 hp to 2,500 hp) for each driveline. Depending on how the components are assembled, the hybrid system can thus account for up to 56 percent of the vehicle’s overall power output.

THE BONES OF THE MAN SMART HYBRID EXPERIENCE

Diesel engine

D2862 (V12), D2868 (V8) or D2676 (in-line six-cylinder) are available with outputs ranging from 290 kW (394 hp) to 1,471 kW (2,000 hp).

Clutch

Electromagnetic. Separates the diesel engine from the electric motor/generator unit. Increases comfort as it is possible to shift gears during operation without loss of power.

Electric motor/generator unit

The electric motor generator unit produces a rated power of 184 kW or 368 kW at an extremely high efficiency rating of up to 96 percent.

Gearbox

Numerous gearbox configurations such as V-Drive, IV-Drive, parallel gearbox and down angle are available.

Zero-emission mode

No emissions and ultraquiet – in zeroemission mode, the energy for propulsion and electrical power consumption is provided exclusively by the battery. The battery can be charged in three ways: Land connection in the harbor, onboard generator sets and main drive engines.

All benefits at a glance:

  • No noise or exhaust gas emissions
  • No vibrations
  • Access to emission control areas

Dieselelectric mode

In dieselelectric mode, the electrical power supply and drive power are provided by the battery and/or the available onboard generator sets. This saves fuel and reduces the load on the engine.

All benefits at a glance

  • Low noise and exhaust gas emissions
  • Low vibrations
  • Efficient operation (low fuel consumption)

Crossover mode

In crossover mode, both drivelines are operated in different operating modes in a two-engine system. Here, one driveline operates in diesel mode, while the electric motor functions as a generator and supplies the electric power for the ship. In the second driveline, the diesel engine is disengaged so that the electric machine receives its energy from the first diesel engine. It operates in motor mode in this case and provides the drive energy.

All benefits at a glance

  • Very economical operation
  • Long range
  • Low vibrations
  • Extended operating time before service (TBO)

Hotel mode

In comfortable hotel mode, the power supply is provided only by the battery, and the diesel engines are switched off. The innovative technology ensures that power consumption is possible for an extended period without diesel engines. Independently of this, the batteries can be charged in parallel via a charging connection.

All benefits at a glance

  • No noise or exhaust gas emissions
  • No vibrations
  • Full operational readiness without engines

Boost mode

In boost mode, the combustion engines and battery-operated electric motors work together and complement each other. If power is needed, the electric motor provides energy from its power reserves. Boost mode therefore offers the highest power density and permits maximum power output. Combined operation of the 12-cylinder diesel engine and actuator thus makes it possible to achieve an output that corresponds to that of a pure 16-cylinder engine.

All benefits at a glance

  • Combination of maximum power with the advantages of a hybrid and zeroemission drive system
  • Increase in power by up to 20% compared with a conventional drive

Diesel mode

In classic diesel mode, the drive energy is provided by the conventional diesel engine or diesel engines in multi-engine systems. In this mode, the electric motor runs without any function and no power is generated.

All benefits at a glance

  • Established drive system
  • Long range
  • Accustomed flexible driving styles ranging from economical to sporty

MARINE HYBRID SYSTEM FROM MAN ENGINES SCOOPS PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS

The MAN Smart Hybrid Experience from MAN Engines has taken top spot in two prestigious international awards. It has won both the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021”, which recognises outstanding design quality, as well as the “German Innovation Award 2021”, which is given to products and solutions that principally set themselves apart through their user-centric design and improvements over existing solutions.
