Volvo Penta to evaluate fast charging of electric vessels

Volvo Penta has announced that it is to complete a feasibility study together with ABB in Sweden and Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg to evaluate technology concepts that can meet the challenge of providing fast charging of electric vessels. On Land and At Sea. Volvo Penta is a global leader in diesel engines and petrol inboard engines for marine & industrial applications and innovations including Volvo Penta IPS and Volvo Penta Aquamatic sterndrive. Serviced industries include Marine, Agriculture, Construction, Mining & Forestry. For reliability, uptime and total economic, social and environmental sustainability, the choice is Volvo Penta! Enquire Now

The feasibility study to be undertaken by Volvo Penta will assess if electric charging technology used on Volvo Buses’ electric bus routes could be adapted for marine applications. The research team does not have to start from scratch, thanks to the pioneering work of other business areas of the Volvo Group. Volvo Buses – again in collaboration with organizations such as ABB, Chalmers University of Technology and City of Gothenburg– has developed a fast charging network to support its two electric bus routes in the city. The feasibility study will assess if similar technology could be adapted for marine applications. While all-electric boating remains in its infancy, upon completion of the feasibility study, it is envisaged that the fast charging technology will be incorporated into Gothenburg’s Marine Demo Arena and become part of the ElectriCity public transport network.
