Electric chargers for Italian marinas

The Italian Tourist Ports Association, Assomarinas, and Aqua superPower are to collaborate on the installation of electric boat charging stations in the marinas of the Assomarinas network. The two parties will jointly promote electric boating as a benefit for the nautical market and the environment.

Through the partnership, Aqua will supply and install its high-power smart grid marine chargers at no cost to the site operator, creating an infrastructure for electric boats and charging corridors along the entire Italian coast.
Assomarinas has been operating since 1972 to create a network of accommodation facilities for leisure boats along the Italian coast and strengthen the exchange of information and services between tourist port operators. The organisation has over 90 associated marinas and its partnership with Aqua will support group members in achieving their sustainability and decarbonisation goals. Foundations will be laid for establishing a network of chargers.
“Assomarinas shares Aqua superPower’s long-term vision of a growing electric boating market and is delighted to cooperate in this important transition. Marinas need to be prepared for the new needs of electric boaters, and they must provide a reliable network of fast charge stations to make the new electric propulsion technologies more viable and enjoyable, for the benefit of the entire global nautical industry,” says Roberto Perocchio, president of Assomarinas.
“We look forward to working with Assomarinas as marine fast charging partner to help their members reduce the impact of boating on the marine environment,” says Aqua superPower CEO Alex Bamberg. “Access to charging infrastructure that offers a reliable plug and charge experience, offering features like charge point visibility, is essential for boat owners if they are to develop the confidence to transition away from liquid carbon fuels. In partnering with Assomarinas, we will be able to develop fully connected marine fast charging infrastructure along the entire Italian coast to service the growing number of electric boats.”

There is no cost to the marina as regards the installation and network infrastructure. Aqua’s business model is to build, own and operate the network of high-powered chargers and then manage these assets via the cloud. Aqua provides a fully funded turnkey solution. This includes everything, from upgrading grid connections through to 24/7 customer care, the hardware, the Aqua cloud backend system, which drives payment systems, customer care, charging session management, and unique connected services between Aqua’s cloud, charger and vessel.
Aqua manages the entire installation service via its own deployment team and certified contractors in various countries.
