The current status and future developments of the electric propulsion, storage and charging technology for maritime applications were the focus of a new edition of the Maritime Business Forum Vorpommern on 6 November 2017 in Greifswald, Germany. The company Torqeedo GmbH from southern Germany presented itself as a system provider for electric boat and ship drives, which meanwhile sells its products worldwide and proves in many projects that electric drives, adapted to the respective application, are absolutely operational. The applications range from shuttle boats for expedition yachts in Arctic and Antarctic waters to party ships in the USA. In the second lecture, the company IAV Ingenieurgesellschaft Auto und Verkehr presented technical solutions for loading and storage technology that come from the automotive sector and can be used in maritime applications.
