Evoy is happy to announce that we have partnered up with Helgeland Plast in Mo i Rana – Norway – (fully owned by AKVA Group) to test our first system in one of their very well tested Polarcirkel. The Polarcirkel boats have been the preferred boat for fish farmers and professionals for decades in Norway, and have proven their durability through extreme conditions and usage. If an electric system can survive the use in a Polarcirkel, it will survive anything.
The system to be installed in the Polarcirkel 860 is the same that is going into serial production Q3 2019. In peak power, the motor can put out 600 hp and we estimate a top speed of around 60 knots. If we make the target this will be the fastest serial produced electric boat in the world. In the normal cruising speed of about 25 knots, we expect about 1-hour range. We plan to have the boat on the water by 1. of June 2019.
