Triskel Marine has launched their new website for their Integrel generator replacement. Here's a couple of videos of Nigel Calder talking about the technology behind it, one long and one short.

TBH I don't see much advantage.

BP Huh?? Have you actually watched the videos?

This unit, running your engine at 1000 rpm, could provide 150AH of power in about 20 mins. That's sufficient for most boats, even high tech ones, for 24 hours. If you did that with most alternator charging systems, it would take even a 200amp alt at least an hour (circa 80% efficiency) IF your batts could take the charge, which they almost certainly wont.

Not only that, you can run ANY 240v appliance you like, including domestic fridges, freezers, coffee machines, kettles, stove tops and ovens etc.

This is like putting a power station in your boat!

8-9KW from an alternator (well sort of an alternator!), or 5Kw at 1000 rpm is awesome. For the uninitiated, that's around 416 amps at 12v

I've emailed them for some details. I don't understand how you can get that power thru the belt, what the side load is etc etc.

I've also asked if they have a NZ agent yet...

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

I guess to some that would be appealing. But I tried to think if it would be any use to me and came up negative. My goal would be to run the engine as little as possible. My three solar panels are currently doing that just fine.

Do you have a fridge yet BP?

If you don't have all the modern mod cons, you don't need the power station.
Fairly sure BP has minimal use for a hair dryer too...
Although Angela might.

I'm really interested around the points on engine load and power absorbed by the prop (cause we're putting in a new engine and matching the prop to it).
If engines are too big for the prop, or the conditions are flat and don't consume all the power, then this thing can adsorbe that power and put it in the batteries. Kind of like a hybrid car but without the electric propulsion.

Fridge runs off the solar panels.

The system still hinges on your battery capacity no?

Yes, and at the rate of charge, it will have to be the lithium / super expensive batteries. I don't think we are the market demographic for this gear. Have no idea what I'd need a generator for in the first place.

I showed this to Angela. She said the only thing she would like is an iron.
