Aqua superPower Limited are the first fast charge network company to be awarded a grant under the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, funded by the DFT and delivered by Innovate UK.
Plymouth is set to install a network of shore-side charging facilities for its expanding fleet of electric maritime vessels. Over the past year, the city has become home to the UK’s first marine electric passenger ferry and an electric water taxi that will operate 364 days a year.
A consortium of city partners is joining forces to create Plymouth’s Marine e-Charging Liviting Lab (MeLL) which, it is hoped, will provide the pivotal infrastructure required to accelerate innovation and growth.
The project has received more than £570,000 funding as part of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition.
The project is being led by the University of Plymouth in partnership with Plymouth City Council, Princess Yachts and Aqua SuperPower.
