GENERATOR REPLACEMENT

TECHNOLOGY

  • Completely replace your stand alone generator by using ‘spare’ capacity from your existing inboard engine

  • Generates up to 9kw of electrical power without compromising your engine’s performance

  • Fuel savings of up to 25% by producing propulsion and power generation at optimum efficiency

  • Fully automatic - it just works!

WHAT IS IT?

Integrel is the future of power generation afloat, completely replacing your stand alone generator by using “spare” capacity from your existing inboard engine.

Integrel uses smart new technology to generate up to 9kW of electrical power without compromising your engine’s performance. In fact, the system actively manages its output so that the engine is always running at its most fuel efficient.

By using your engine for both propulsion and power generation, both tasks are delivered at optimum efficiency, resulting in fuel savings of up to 25%. One engine, two jobs, less fuel.

Integrel is completely automatic, working in the background with no direct input from you. It requires no maintenance other than a periodic belt change, offering substantial savings on fuel and maintenance costs across its lifetime.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Your existing inboard engine has a significant amount of spare capacity most of the time. Integrel uses this spare capacity to generate electrical energy either for immediate consumption or to charge the battery banks.  As that spare capacity increases and decreases with engine revs, Integrel adjusts its power generation accordingly. Effectively, the Integrel generator is like an alternator on steroids. Permanent magnets embedded in the rotor improve the internal magnetic coupling, delivering exceptionally high power and efficiency. But such high power needs to be handled carefully. Our system controller is programmed with information about the propeller and engine, plus the main elements of the boat’s electrical system. This allows the controller to calculate in real time exactly how much additional load can be added to bring the engine to its most efficient point at any given engine speed.

Propulsion is always prioritised and the electrical power is ramped up slowly to avoid any shock loading on the engine.

 

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?

Additional options and upgrades:

• We supply lead acid or lithium ion batteries and we currently support the following brands: Enersys, Mastervolt, Torqeedo & Victron

• Inverter/charger is available in 3kW 5kW, 8kW, 10kW and 15kW

• Integrel battery to battery charger is available in increments of 500W up to 3kW

• Simrad multi-function display

• Further battery sensors can be added to monitor the house and engine start batteries

 

The standard Integrel system consists of:

• 9kW engine mounted Integrel generator

• Standard engine mounting kit

• Integrel system controller

• 48v battery sensor • DC – DC converter

• 5” touch screen user interface

• Wiring loom and fuses

 

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Name: Mike Carr 

Position: Joint MD @ Pendennis Shipyard

Boat: Jeanneau DS44

“Having considered our power needs and options, we engaged Triskel marine to install their award winning Integrel system on our Jeanneau DS44. They performed a very professional job, specifying and then fitting it in to the available space, and without us losing any valuable storage space onboard.

We recently spent a great couple of weeks onboard and the integrel system performed really well ensuring ice in the fridge, hot showers, fresh coffee, and hair driers on tap - without needing to plug into the shore.”

 

Name: Holly Knight

Boat: Hunter 45 DS

“The Integrel system has made our boat much more like a home. Power is always available when anchored to run my hair dryer, electric hot water heater, air conditioning, and microwave without needing to run the engine every day and getting fumes in the cockpit.

I used to insist on a marina stay every few days while cruising, especially on excessively hot days just to be able to run the AC.

I am now comfortable regardless of whether we are on anchor or at the dock....”

 

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

Integrel is fully automatic and almost no user intervention is required. Simply start the main engine and it will start generating power.

All of the information regarding your boat’s energy system is available on the dedicated user interface, including the amount of diesel fuel that you have in your tank.

When the engine is not running, all of the boat’s electrical systems automatically continue to be supported by the energy stored in the batteries; the more batteries, the greater the boat’s electrical autonomy.

When the batteries need recharging, a reminder appears on the screen indicating the battery level and advising that the engine should be started. Because the generator is so powerful, the engine only needs to be run at idle, or a little above, to recharge the batteries very rapidly.
