Why Parallel Hybrid ?

Why going for a real Parallel Hybrid Solution ?


For many reasons we are looking, beside the conventional diesel drive, to alternative drive line solutions: redressing pollution, fuel consumption, new environmental regulations, efficiency and diesel lifetime improvement and to be ahead on the future !

Many hybrid or alternative solutions are presented, each of them with advantages and disadvantages :

  • Diesel‐Electric : A Gen‐Set is driving an electric motor to drive application.

    Advantages :  Easy switch from forward to reverse, going as slow as needed

    Disadvantages : 8‐10% losses, what is very important in higher power consumption, 

  • Full Electric : Batteries are supplying the energy to electric propulsion motor

    Advantages :     Easy switch from forward to reverse, going as slow as needed  Zero emission !

    Disadvantages : No back up for missing battery energy, important needs of  batteries/limited autonomy.

  • Shaft Generator : Generator built on the driveline shaft

    Advantages :  Going as slow as needed, easy switch from diesel to electric power

    Disadvantages : built on the slow shaft, after gearbox => High power/torque required to operate

Esco Power believes in finding the best solution and developed a full Parallel Hybrid Solution.
