Charging Solutions for Boats and Port Facilities

The development of electrically powered boats is still in its infancy. However, they have the capability to grow at the same pace as electric cars. To facilitate this transition, a robust network of boat charging stations will have to be established. Currently the charging options are scarce, making it difficult for both boat owners to purchase a charger and for vessels to find charging opportunities while cruising the fjords. Coastal communities should consider investing in charging infrastructure to help transition the vessel fleet away from fossil fuels. These charging stations can offer the same payment solutions as electric vehicles.

Norway’s first floating fast charger

Supercharge delivered Norway’s first floating fast charger in 2021. The Lydløs electric boat Festival showcased the future of boating and Supercharge was part of it. Electric boat owners who visited the festival in Arendal could stop by Supercharge’s fast charging station and charge their boats. Our floating charging station can be moved and, when winter comes, it can be lifted and stored onshore. Watch the video from the day and take a closer look at our boat fast charger.

Shielded charging cable

Seawater and electronics generally don’t get along, but our chargers can withstand the toughest coastal environments. For example, the charging cable is pulled inside the housing when it is not in use, protecting it from the elements until the next boat comes along to use it.

Tailored charging solutions

At Supercharge we have developed our own chargers which are tailored towards boats and marinas. We offer professional fast charging solutions which cover all charging needs for private and public port facilities. We supply charging systems with 10 – 350kW charging effect per outlet. We also provide AC slow-chargers with dynamic load-distribution. The available power and capacity in common port facilities can be  distributed in a way to maximize overall charge efficiency. Boats can then be charged over a longer period, negating the need for fast charging.
