Low noise and vibration make these motors attractive for recreational boating.
The axial dimension is reduced thanks to bearings integrated within the overall stator length.
Zero emissions are produced during electric ships are sailing, and electricity can be produced from low or no-carbon sources. Green navigation satisfies stricter emissions regulations, and will not be subject to emissions/fuel taxes.
Electric ships have 30-50% lower operating costs compared to traditional combustion ships. Refuelling with hydrogen is likely to cost ~ 50% of kerosene, and recharging batteries is likely to cost 5-10x less
Electric ships are 90% efficient while conventional combustion ships are only 35% efficient. Investment in battery technology is booming for electric mobility and primary energy storage, never so high worldwide
Attractive to climate-conscious consumers, such as the 46% of passengers who would pay ≥2% or more for carbon-neutral travel. Lower noise emissions increase possible locations served, providing passengers with greater travel flexibility
