THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

First in Barcelona, first in Redwood City

The first Aqua superPower electric marine fast charge station at Marina Vela in Barcelona, Spain joins a unit installed a few months ago in the Port of La Rápita to initiate the creation of a charging corridor on the Catalan coast.

The new marine fast charge station at Marina Vela in Barcelona is the second on the Spanish Catalan coast.

The charge station, installed and financed by Aqua superPower, offers a power of 75kW and twin CCS2 connectors. Two electric boats can simultaneously recharge in as little as 20 to 40 minutes. The charge station is accessible to electric boat users via the Aqua app that can be downloaded on any device to provide a seamless user experience.
“With this electric boat charge station, another step is taken towards converting the port of Barcelona into a green port,” said Alberto Garcia, director of Marina Vela Barcelona. “Marina Vela Barcelona is the first nautical facility in Barcelona that has an electric marine charge station of 75 kW power to bring the arrival of ‘zero emissions’ boating. The installation of the new Aqua superPower fast charge station is part of our commitment to the environment and leading the way in sustainable marina management practices.”
Another ‘first’ marine fast charging station has been installed at Westpoint Harbor in Redwood City, San Francisco Bay. Westpoint Harbor is a world-class, award-winning marina that offers a protected harbour with modern slips up to 120ft (37m) and dry storage. As a Clean Marine award holder, Westpoint Harbor leads the way with sustainable marina management practices, and the decision to become the first Aqua network host in the Bay Area continues that tradition by supporting the growing number of boat users who want to switch to clean electric boating.

The Aqua 75 DC marine supercharger installed at Westpoint Harbor will provide boat owners with access to reliable plug and charge infrastructure, offering features such as charge point visibility to develop the confidence to transition away from liquid carbon fuels.
“As a Gold Anchor marina, Westpoint Harbor is committed to clean marine practices,” said Westpoint Harbor president Mark Sanders. "Having the opportunity to install Aqua’s marine supercharger was exciting. Sustainability and protecting the environment are extremely important to us, and we are not short on early technology adopters around here. Redwood City is in the heart of Silicon Valley, and electric boating is the next logical step in maritime e-mobility."
Scott Canning, vice president US business development at Aqua superPower, explained: "Electric marine mobility works best when boat users can take advantage of conveniently located charging stations throughout their local area. These e-boat corridors are central to our vision, and we are delighted to work with Westpoint Harbor on developing this critical infrastructure as the first Aqua superPower charging hub in San Francisco Bay."
