Best described as a compact and intelligent power station, the new Steyr Motors Serial Hybrid acts as a generator, inverter, three-step battery charger and shore power hub all rolled into one.
by Bernadette McIntyre
Developed in conjunction with Mastervolt, the Steyr Motors ‘Serial Hybrid’ is an efficient and compact Genset combining the unique Steyr Motors diesel engine with a highly efficient Permanent Magnet generator.
The core of the Genset is a newly developed horizontal, 2 cylinder, parallel, twin marine diesel engine with 25 kW and equipped with the Steyr Motors patented mass balancing system.
Smaller and lighter than conventional generators, the ‘Serial Hybrid’ provides everything needed to run high-demand systems on a boat, and does so with automatic precision.
The Serial Hybrid will be on display at the Steyr Motors Australia stand at the Sydney International Boat Show July 28- August 1, Stand 206b.
