The benefits that come with switching to electric don’t stop there.
How long does it take to charge?
With a 6 kW AC outlet you can charge one battery (63 kWh) in about 10 hours. With a 22 kW outlet you charge one battery (63 kWh) in about three hours. With the DC supercharger of 75 kW you can charge one battery in about one hour. With a DC 150 kW you can charge one battery in about 30 minutes.
With two battery packs charging time is doubled.
What incentives are available?
For businesses in Norway, there is an incentive program for through Enova which supports commercial crafts with more than 100.000 kW use /25 tonn CO2 emissions with up to 50 % of additional cost. Fishery and fish farming boats can receive up to 50% funding regardless of power/emissions. In addition to support for the system itself there is also up to 40 % support for infrastructure and project costs. Evoy® can help with Enova application and submission.
How far can I go?
This is fully dependent on the boat and the size of the system that you put in it. However, with today’s battery technology you can expect between 15 to 30 nautical miles at a planing hull speed. With a hydrofoil significantly more range can be achieved. At a slower speed, below hull speed (approximately 5 knots for a 25-footer), this range can be quadrupled.
