STADT has finalised installation of the Lean Propulsion system on the megayacht White Rabbit, built at Echo Yachts in Perth Australia.
White Rabbit is 3,000 gross tonnes, 84m-long, and 20m-wide. It is built in aluminium and is the first ever megayacht built in Australia with diesel-electric propulsion.
It is also one of the world’s largest trimaran superyachts.
Endurance is important for such a ship, so weight, size and propulsion efficiency has been very important for this project.
It has a range of 5,000nm.
Two geared STADT AC induction motors run the 2 shaft line CP propellers. This represents a high efficiency and low weight overall solution.
The STADT Lean Drive technology also represents a reliable technology that ensures the propellers will not stop in the middle of the ocean.
A noise free ride is also essential for a mega yacht. Patented Sinusoidal drive features make this possible with the Lean Drives, which is now also used in naval ships for this reason.
