The AQUA team has a long and successful history in deploying electric vehicle charging
infrastructure and is now bringing this knowledge to the marine sector. Clean marine mobility works best when recreational and commercial boat users can take advantage of conveniently located charging stations throughout their local area. These e-boat corridors are central to the AQUA vision, with the company supporting its hosts in developing this critical regional infrastructure.
The first superchargers were installed in Monaco, which has always been an incubator for green technology. Since then, the AQUA superPower network has expanded along the Côte d’Azur, the Italian Riviera, Venice, Spain, Canada, the US, and the UK’s first charging network for electric maritime vessels in Plymouth, funded by the Department for Transport with Innovate UK as delivery partner.
Within the business model, a marina sets aside an area away from its conventional gas refueling and AQUA superPower complete the installation. AQUA superPower bears the cost of the grid connection, the hardware, the various apps and back-office systems. This incentivises forward thinking marina owners and port operators, placing them well ahead of the expected surge in high- power electric boating.
