• E-motor, Direct drive from 5 up to 1800 kW / shaft

  • High efficient e-motor controllers

  • Powered by batteries or/with an energy set (generator)

  • Electrotechnical components

  • Power management


Enjoying the peace and quiet from being on the water is what most watersport practitioners have in common. An electric or hybrid propulsion system can add to this experience as you will smell and hear the sounds of nature instead of the engine.  The experience of peace and quiet is a design requirement for us. 

Silent sailing, minimizing maintenance or an extra long sailing season. We can design, deliver and implement a complete configuration for you, from electric propulsion to efficient heating and/or cooling.

We will be happy to advise you on the possibilities for optimisation in your ship. In the case of newbuild, we will have a look at the possibilities for an effective total solution together with you. We are neutral in the selection of our components and important are the aspects of comfort and energy efficiency. Is electric or hybrid sailing interesting for you? Contact us and we will get back to you.


Tour boating companies, inland shipping, fisherman's ships or short sea shipping need to comply with the (new) emission regulations, also cost-effectiveness and limited downtime play an important role in the decision-making process. The canal cruise in Amsterdam is having a zero emission policy. Other cities and/or shipping areas are following. 


With the design, delivery, and implementation of modern electrical, hybrid or multigen solutions, Electric Ship Facilities helps your company to become future proof. Together with you, we look at the possibilities for an effective total solution. By combining a smart design a collaborative and efficient system is created as a foundation for the coming years.


There are many possibilities to achieve improvements through (incremental) innovations. Are you looking for an alternative for your harbour generator or do you need a new power train to achieve zero emission sailing? We would like to hear your wishes, questions or ideas. Please contact us, we will gladly advise you and discuss the possibilities.

our approach

To start, we will give you general advice based on your specifications and/or wishes. The results are the start of a go/no go for the next phase.

In the next phase, we will assist where necessary in order to achieve a deeper understanding of the sailing profiles and consumption profiles. Based on this, we will design the initial set-up for the most energy-efficient propulsion, the desired facilities, and the associated energy supply.

After thorough coordination, this set-up is worked out into detail in a total configuration. In this phase, the control system is also initialised. The condition for the end result is that all safety and security measures must be safeguarded.

In the final proposal, we take into account who does what in the realisation phase. Are you, as a shipyard, the client or are you the owner/customer and do you want to outsource the entire implementation? We are happy to supply the components or make you a suitable proposal for the full implementation of the project.
