As pioneers in the field of electric mobility, Torqeedo has set many standards since founding the company, reinforcing the lead of our electric boat motors over all other solutions available on the market.
Superior technology and revolutionary benefits are what Torqeedo sets out to achieve. And every product that Torqeedo brings to market meets both these criteria. All our drive systems operate at record levels regarding overall efficiency. This is the most important measure of electric propulsion as it determines potential power and range for a limited battery supply.
Torqeedo offers outboards and inboards, electric boat motors and hybrid drive systems ranging from 0 5 to 100 kW on motor level (up to 200 kW on system level). There are also all sorts of functional and innovative accessories – from lithium batteries and solar-charging equipment to smartphone apps.
A MINIMISED IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
The OXE Diesel outboard engine reduces fuel consumption by over 42%. This is compared to a modern gasoline outboard engine of equivalent horsepower, setting new standards for internal combustion engines within the global outboard engine industry. By using highly refined automotive-based engine technology, the OXE Diesel is leading in the marine industry with the lowest fuel consumption levels, as well as the lowest emission levels on the market in an outboard combustion engine, while still maintaining range. The result is a minimised impact on the environment, significantly reducing not only CO2 but also CO, HC, and NOx emissions.
THE DNA OF WHISPER POWER
At Whisper Power they are driven by a distinctive challenge. Their products are only seen as perfect when you can neither see nor hear them. With this in mind, all Whisper Power’s innovation efforts are geared towards creating silent and vibration-free generators and electrical systems that do their work without interruption. It’s not just about loose components but rather a unique combination within their renowned All-in-One PowerStation.
Whisper Power sets itself apart by offering smart innovations that prove their value in every day operation. In the most challenging conditions, you can fully rely on their PowerStation – whether on water, in the air or on land. And that is the reason for our fast growth and worldwide success. Whisper Power introduces OctoPower, the new line of zero/ low-emission total systems.
A cappuccino on board is very nice, same as a cold beer. Coffee maker, refrigerator, oven … The need for power is growing, also in places without connection to a permanent electricity network. Whisper Power is responding to this need. The Drachten-based company develops, manufactures and supplies complete power systems for marine and mobile applications. Get ready to meet OctoPower!
Our Corporate Social Responsibility
UN Environment launched #CleanSeas in February 2017 with the aim of engaging governments, the general public, civil society and the private sector in the fight against marine plastic litter. Over the past five years, this campaign has aimed to address the root cause of marine litter by targeting the production and consumption of single-use plastic.
Southern Power helped to launch, and pledged towards, the initiative. Over the past two years, the Clean Seas Campaign has become one of the largest global campaigns for combatting marine plastic pollution with national commitments from 60 countries covering more than 60% of the world’s coastlines. It has become a catalyst for change, inspiring governments to pass plastic reduction policies, encouraging industry to minimise plastic packaging, redesign products, motivate consumers to change their habits and demand more action from both the public and private sectors.
