Oceanvolt launches its own batteries for electric propulsion of boats

Oceanvolt electric motor

The Finnish specialist in electric propulsion for boats launches its own range of batteries. A further step towards an integrated offer for zero-emission recreational boats.

1st Oceanvolt batteries

Oceanvolt has been active for several years in the market for electric propulsion of boats. Until now, the Finnish company only offered electric motors on shaft lines or with a saildrive base, with the possibility of hydrogenation. For energy storage, it worked in partnership with the manufacturers of Super B batteries, Valencia and Odyssey. While it does not stop these partnerships, Oceanvolt now offers its own 48 V Lithium Ion batteries. The software management developed by the manufacturer allows the coupling of 16 battery modules for a maximum capacity of 30.4kWh.
The manufacturer claims a 45% lighter weight than other LiFe batteries on the market.
