Aqua superPower and Kempower are announcing a strategic partnership to assist high usage operators like Yacht Club de Monaco to service the needs of the next generation e-boats. The collaboration between Aqua superPower and YCM resulted in the largest public marine charging station on a single pontoon, which consists of a mix of both high power DC and slower AC chargers. Aqua superPower project managed and delivered Kempower’s charging solution to YCM.

In 2019, Yacht Club de Monaco (YCM) was the first marina in the world to equip its dock with Aqua’s DC marine fast chargers, paving the way for the adoption of electric boating, an initiative that included adding electric tenders to reinforce its Sports Section’s fleet. As host of the prestigious annual Monaco Energy Boat Challenge, YCM took its commitment to electric boating a step further by collaborating with Aqua superPower as a technical partner for this year’s event.

Aqua superPower partnered with Kempower to assist high usage site operators like Yacht Club de Monaco in managing their evolving demand for electric boat charging, enhance revenue, and support the marine industry’s transition to electric propulsion.

“We are committed to fostering a cleaner environment and working for emission-free transportation, not only on land but also at sea. Participating in the development of the world’s largest public marine fast-charging installation on a single pontoon is a significant milestone in advancing the electrification of boats. We’re happy to be part of this project, which aims to accelerate the electrification of boats across Europe. We look forward to continuing the collaboration with Aqua superPower in the future”, said Kempower’s CEO Tomi Ristimäki.

“We constantly seek proven ‘best-in-class’ technology partners in the development of our marine fast charging network and infrastructure. We elected to work with Kempower for their scalable system architecture and seamless user experience. Our partnership enables us to provide the resilient and high-power marine fast charging that meets the commercial and leisure user demands at Yacht Club de Monaco. Our approach is centered on delivering future-proof Aqua certified marine charging infrastructure dependent on usage and location that provides the confidence to transition to clean electric boating. This has been made possible through the fantastic commitment of Yacht Club de Monaco as a global pioneer in marine e-mobility and innovation”, said Aqua superPower’s CEO Alex Bamberg.
