THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

Developing a fast charge network

Marine fast charge network Aqua superPower won a Special Mention in the DAME Design Awards, highlighting the impact of the company on the marine sector’s transition to electric propulsion.

Aqua launched its network in 2021 and, after just one year, had created regional and local charging corridors in key boating destinations in France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, the UK, the USA and the Nordic countries.
According to a recent report by Allied Market Research, the global electric boat market was valued at $5 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $16.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 12.9% between 2022 and 2031. Electric propulsion is the most significant new trend in the boating industry and Aqua superPower supports marinas, commercial operators, boat builders and boat owners in the drive to bring electric power to the water.
Aqua owns, operates and maintains each marina network using its own cloud-based back-office system. Its IP-65 rated hardware is specifically chosen to withstand the challenges of the marine environment. An important aspect of the network is the data it collects, which provides clear insight into general usage trends, how often boats are used, and how much charge they use. This helps service providers plan ahead, cater for emerging patterns, improve route planning, manage fleet capacities, measure their sustainability goals and so on.
Chargers on the Aqua network provide reliable and ultrafast 25kW-150kW DC charging for both leisure and commercial boats. By working with all leading electric boat builders to encourage universal charging standards, Aqua superPower’s technology will be compatible with most leisure and commercial electric and hybrid boats.
