What can Hybrid Transmissions provide?

Ever more strict environmental regulations and laws on the world's oceans demand clean, sustainable propulsion technology for shipping. The hybrid transmissions developed by ZF represent an important component for the realization of environmentally-friendly propulsion systems. For ship operators, this means lower fuel consumption and lower emissions. ZF offers the right propulsion solution for a wide range of vessel types.


Technical Information

ZF Marine offers a broad portfolio of hybrid transmissions with a power range from approximately 600 kW of conventional power (ZF 33X0 series) to 11,500 kW (ZF 83700). By integrating a power take-in (PTI), ZF can make conventional transmissions connect to hybrid and electric motors. In addition, ZF supplies complete systems with flexible couplings, electric pumps, inverters and electric control units. For the power range up to max. 300 kW, ZF also offers CeTrax, a suitable electric motor that was developed in-house.
Features of the ZF hybrid transmissions:
  • Wide range of configuration options: PTOs, trolling valves, trailing pumps
  • Adaptation of the housing depending on the application (cast iron or light alloy)
  • Maximum installation flexibility
  • Reversing gearboxes with the configurations DR (diagonal right) and DL (diagonal left) are available

Compact All-Rounder: ZF 5200 A PTI

First hybrid-capable down angle marine transmission with power take-in and a wide range of transmission ratios. The transmission is also available in a V-drive configuration and an optionally integrated shaft brake improves the ship's maneuverability and crash-stop behavior. Thanks to modular construction and a compact design, ZF hybrid transmissions take up extremely little space, which leaves more room for additional hotel space, for example.
