This collaboration marks a significant milestone in the marine industry, resulting in the world’s largest public marine charging station on a single pontoon.
The project, facilitated by Aqua superPower, encompasses a range of charging options, including the Aqua 75 DCs, Aqua Pods, and the innovative Kempower solution, contributing to the Yacht Club de Monaco’s mission to embrace electric boating and transition to cleaner, sustainable energy sources.
The marina has been equipped with the cutting-edge Kempower Satellite charging system, designed to meet the growing demand for electric boat charging.
Yacht Club de Monaco, a pioneer in promoting electric boating, first installed Aqua’s DC marine fast chargers in 2019 and added electric tenders to its fleet as part of its commitment to environmental sustainability.
In collaboration with Aqua superPower, YCM has established itself as a leader in the electrification of boats.
This partnership further solidified during the prestigious annual Monaco Energy Boat Challenge, where Aqua superPower acted as a technical partner, showcasing the future of electric propulsion in the marine industry.
Aqua superPower and Kempower’s strategic alliance aims to support high-usage operators like Yacht Club de Monaco in meeting the evolving demand for electric boat charging, enhancing revenue, and accelerating the transition to electric propulsion in the marine industry.
Kempower’s CEO, Tomi Ristimäki, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “We are committed to fostering a cleaner environment and working for emission-free transportation, not only on land but also at sea. Participating in the development of the world’s largest public marine fast-charging installation on a single pontoon is a significant milestone in advancing the electrification of boats.”
“We’re happy to be part of this project, which aims to accelerate the electrification of boats across Europe. We look forward to continuing the collaboration with Aqua superPower in the future,” he added.
Aqua superPower’s CEO, Alex Bamberg, highlighted their commitment to delivering innovative solutions for clean electric boating, stating, “We constantly seek proven ‘best-in-class’ technology partners in the development of our marine fast charging network and infrastructure. We elected to work with Kempower for their scalable system architecture and seamless user experience.”
“Our partnership enables us to provide the resilient and high-power marine fast charging that meets the commercial and leisure user demands at Yacht Club de Monaco. Our approach is centered on delivering future-proof Aqua certified marine charging infrastructure dependent on usage and location that provides the confidence to transition to clean electric boating. This has been made possible through the fantastic commitment of Yacht Club de Monaco as a global pioneer in marine e-mobility and innovation,” he added.
