Hybrid Propulsion Plant


The first German submarine with a hybrid propulsion plant is being built by the Howaldtswerke Deutsche Werft AG (HDW) and the Thyssen-Nordseewerke GmbH (TNSW) yards under contract for the German Navy. Charging the U212 battery still requires snorkel operation during which an exhaust-gas turbocharged MTU 16V-396 engine of 1050 kW (1428 HP) supplies electrical power for the battery, propulsion motor and on-board system. In snorkel operation, the engine reacts without delay to fast changing operating conditions, at the same time having a favourable fuel consumption - at constant speed and especially in part-load operation - compared with mechanically supercharged engines.
