Rimot is teaming with Evoy to deploy its intelligent bi-directional fast-charging vessel-to-grid (V2G) solutions with Evoy’s industry-leading electric propulsion systems – a first for Canada.
The partnership agreement brings together Rimot’s innovative BlueGrid vessel-to-grid technology and Evoy’s sustainable electric marine vessel propulsion systems to turn electric vessels into virtual power plants (VPP).
Electric vessels will become economical energy storage resources to support electricity grids at their times of greatest need without negatively impacting vessel operations. New vessel-to-grid revenue streams for vessel owners further reduce the total cost of ownership of electric vessels, providing an important additional incentive for those in the marine sector to convert to electric vessels.
Evoy has been developing sustainable electric motor systems for some of the world’s largest boating brands to accelerate the shift to emission-free electric boating. Evoy’s longer-lasting, sustainable motor systems reduce greenhouse gas emissions at sea. Based in Florø, Norway, the company has now sold turnkey electric motor systems to customers in more than 16 countries.
The two companies’ development teams are working to integrate the respective systems and data for first commercial scale deployments in 2023.
Rimot’s capability with vessel-to-grid combined with Evoy’s leading electric propulsion systems will accelerate adoption of electric vessels and reduce CO2 emission for both marine vessels and the electric grid.
“In complementary ways, Rimot and Evoy are each focused on getting more V2G-enabled electric vessels on the water. This partnership is setting a new foundation for both companies to build on our respective expertise and technology to significantly lower emissions for marine transportation and the electric grid.”
Andrew Boswell, Founder & CEO, Rimot
“As someone who was born in Canada, I am excited about pursuing partnerships and opportunities that will expand Evoy’s impact in North America and farther. Fighting climate change and getting to net zero means that the oceans sector must play a major role in reducing its emissions and having companies like Evoy and Rimot collaborate can only improve results for the planet.”
Leif A. Stavøstrand, Co-founder & CEO, Evoy
Rimot helps marine transportation and electricity utilities achieve net zero together.
Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Rimot develops vessel-to-grid (V2G) technology to unlock the full environmental and economic value of marine vessel electrification for both vessel owners and the electric grid. Rimot’s BlueGrid V2G technology turns marine vessels into virtual power plants for utility-grade energy storage.
Rimot’s team believe bluer oceans and greener energy are vitally important and are working hard to accelerate the path to both. More at www.rimot.io.
