Triskel Marine Trials Boat receives Engine Upgrade

As part of Triskel Marine’s continuing programme of energy systems development and testing, the trials boat Armorel is having an engine change. Previous on board trials have centred on the Steyr hybrid engine, which had the capability of propelling the boat in both diesel and electric modes.

Now looking for a more commercial solution, the Steyr hybrid engine has been removed and is being replaced with a state of the art Yanmar 4JH80. This 58kW engine meets the latest Tier 3 exhaust emission limits and will be used to test new hybrid power technologies, including new generators, sensors and displays.
