With the new additions of two Aqua 200 HPC electric charging stations on the pontoon in front of the Yacht Club de Monaco, the Principality has become home to the largest installation of public fast charging stations for marine vessels in the world.
Since 2019, the Yacht Club de Monaco (YCM) has been gradually installing various forms of electric marine charging stations, putting the establishment at the forefront of the new, greener age of the yachting industry.
Now the YCM has added to its already considerable amenities catering to this market by installing two Aqua 200 HPC marine charging piles from the company Aqua superPower.
“A global pioneer in marine e-mobility and innovation”
The new networks are high-tech stainless-steel marvels, each offering dual CCS2 IP 69 standard charging connectors. The system runs a modular rack-style converter cabinet that can supply up to 600 kW of total charging power to as many as eight Aqua satellite charging points.
In announcing the successful installations in Monaco, Aqua superPower also revealed its new partnership with scalable EV charging solutions developer Kempower, that will help support clients like the YCM by managing its e-boat charging network whilst helping augment revenue streams.
“Our partnership enables us to provide the resilient and high-power marine fast charging that meets the commercial and leisure user demands at [the] Yacht Club de Monaco,” says Aqua superPower CEO Alex Bamberg. “Our approach is centred 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.”
With a growing number of yacht owners and sailors switching to electric-powered vessels as a way to cut emissions, the YCM’s decision to install such an extensive network of marine charging solutions has put it ahead of the game.
“Monaco has always fostered its tradition as a pioneer in motorboating,” says YCM General Secretary, Bernard d’Alessandri. “Today, the Yacht Club de Monaco continues this tradition of innovation through its collective ‘Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting’ approach, by hosting international events such as the Monaco Smart Yacht Rendezvous [and] the Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina Rendezvous, and by organising the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge, with the aim to build a sustainable yachting sector.”
