Red and White Fleet sought a hybrid power solution that offered sustainable fuel consumption, lessened impact on marine life, and provided quieter operation than traditional diesel engines. During the construction of the vessel, All American Marine, Inc., partnered with Twin Disc to develop a specialized control system for the vessel that would meet Subchapter K requirements. One challenge was integrating traditional marine transmissions with the electric motors. Unlike traditional diesel engines, when reverse is engaged on an electric motor, there is no need for a clutch to be engaged. The engine simply slows down to zero RPMs and then begins rotating in the other direction without any shift.
