Evoy hands over first electric boat to E. Karstensen

Evoy has handed over an electric boat that will mainly be used to transport Norway-based E. Karstensen’s fish farmers from the shore to farm locations.

The new boat is a Polarcircle 860. It features a 100% electric propulsion system with a 400 hp continuous rating. Evoy says the boat has plenty of power to ensure smooth operations on site as it’s outfitted with 120kWh Power Pro batteries enabling the crew to operate efficiently and with almost no motor sound.

“When we started Evoy, we talked with E. Karstensen pretty early to find out how they were using their boats and what their challenges were. They were interested in having a solution that was making no noise which is beneficial in the aquafarming industry,” says Leif Stavøstrand, Evoy CEO.

“We are excited and proud to have the first E-boat as part of our fleet,” says Nils-Tore Karstensen.

“We pride ourselves to be an early adopter company, as we truly appreciate trying new technologies. Therefore, we have concluded a partnership through Leif A. Stavøstrand with Evoy and ordered an E-boat.”
