Volvo Penta acquires ZEM

Tuesday, Jun 8, 2021

maritime zero emissions sustainability...

Volvo Penta acquires majority stake in Norwegian marine battery systems pioneer ZEM. Seeking to expand its capabilities and experience Volvo Penta has announced that it has acquired a majority stake in ZEM, the Norwegian marine battery and electric driveline solutions supplier. ZEM battery and driveline solutions integrate state-of-the-art components, from industry leading manufacturers, into a very safe and robust system. Together Volvo Penta and ZEM will seek to expand their range and capabilities in the area of electro-mobility and further advancement in maritime zero emissions sustainability and the ambitions of the Volvo Group.

“As a part of the Volvo Group’s great electromobility initiatives, Volvo Penta has a solid technology foundation to leverage. Marine electromobility, however, has a unique set of requirements,” explains Peter Granqvist, Chief Technology Officer, Volvo Penta. “There are very specific considerations that are of the utmost importance around the installation environment, safety, as well as the use case itself plus the current lack of charging infrastructure.” “We believe that bringing different perspectives and experiences together is key when it comes to developing, and progressing, within the field of marine electromobility,” he continues. “The ambition of this fantastic acquisition is to take another step forward in our electromobility development, thanks to the specialized marine competence and offer that ZEM has today.”
