Membertou First Nation Fisheries want to build electric boats to reduce the carbon footprint and promote sustainable fishing practices.
Rimot brought our Vessel Insight service to work with Membertou and Oceans North on energy and voyage profile analysis on their existing hydrocarbon-powered fishing vessels. Membertou got valuable insight into their existing fishing fleet during in and off-season periods considering the boats’ size, weight, and power requirements to determine the optimal battery and propulsion needs for electrification.
The energy and voyage profile analysis from Rimot has confirmed that they can go electric and profit from other benefits that come with electric vessels using Rimot Vessel-to-Grid technology. We look forward to continuing to work with Membertou First Nations for their innovative way of thinking toward the stewardship of the environment.
