The first fully marinised network of fast chargers for electric boats, AQUA superPower will be showcasing the powerful Aqua 150kW IP65 rated rapid charger, enabling both leisure and commercial electric boats to rapidly recharge and extend their autonomy. Visitors to the AQUA superPower booth will learn how marinas and waterside locations can benefit from the shift to electric boating by providing high-speed charging infrastructure as part of their decarbonisation and sustainability plans.
Aqua SuperPower fully funds and deploys state-of-the-art, high-power chargers globally. The Aqua network is connected to the cloud and securely accessed via the Aqua app and RFID card. The app enables users to view a map showing charger options and offers navigational aids to guide them to their chosen location.
Aqua hardware is specifically chosen to withstand the challenges of the marine environment, providing reliable and rapid 25-150kW DC charging. All chargers use the international CCS charging standard, which ensures safety, durability and reliability for all users. By working with all leading electric boat builders to encourage conformity to charging standards, Aqua is developing a fully integrated charging ecosystem that is compatible with most electric and hybrid boats.
The requirement for a joined-up network of reliable and fast marine chargers to create charging hubs and corridors for electric boat users is crucial if we are to secure the transition away from liquid carbon fuels. The charging speed provided by DC fast chargers is critical to the growth prospects of the e-boat industry. Aqua SuperPower’s strategy is to supply reliable, high-speed charging to commercial and recreational marine craft users internationally.
Aqua SuperPower is the first fast-charge network company awarded a grant under the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, funded by the UK Department for Transport and delivered with Innovate UK. Led by the University of Plymouth with Plymouth City Council, Princess Yachts Limited and Aqua SuperPower as technology partner, Plymouth’s Marine e-Charging Living Lab (MeLL) will host the UK’s first charging network for electric maritime vessels. Aqua SuperPower’s marine fast-charge technology and the MeLL project were showcased at COP26 in Glasgow.
