By partnering up with well-known tech start-up c.technology, Torqeedo will digitally revolutionize the maritime industry.
Torqeedo, the global leader of electric mobility on water, and c.technology, a cutting-edge SaaS cloud infrastructure provider for powersport vehicles, are proud to announce their new partnership. The two companies are developing smart motors and plan to showcase the intelligent software system at METSTRADE (15-18 November 2023). Bringing cloud technology to electric boating products marks another milestone for Torqeedo on its mission to make boating more sustainable, enjoyable, and easy to use.
Fabian Bez, CEO of Torqeedo, states, "At Torqeedo, we are always thinking ‘beyond the boat’. That means considering the sustainable boating ecosystem holistically and asking a lot of tough questions. How can we make electric boating even more user-friendly, convenient and fun? How can we best leverage charging capacity in a marina? How can we deliver remote service and system maintenance? How can we use onboard battery capacity to its fullest? How can we help fleet managers understand their customers' usage patterns and help commercial operations maximise up-time? How can we make sure our service centers can anticipate customer needs and always have the spare parts they need in stock? The answers to these questions, and many more, are all in the data.”
Bez continued: “The partnership with c.technology is a significant step towards a better customer experience with e-mobility on the water, whether you are a regatta sailor or running a ferry service. By leveraging cloud services, our smart motors will set new standards and further consolidate Torqeedo's position as a global market leader. With this technology, we will decisively shape the future of the marine industry."
Torqeedo's industry expertise combined with the technical know-how of c.technology will create an innovative platform that takes electric boating to a new level. Boaters, commercial operations and fleet managers will enjoy a more user-friendly and connected experience through highly informative web-based and mobile applications. Torqeedo owners can also opt-in to allow Torqeedo and its authorized service centers to collect system information to provide the best service and maintenance experience, and to provide anonymized data to be used in developing the infrastructure and services to support the emission-free future of the marine industry.
Christian Fehr, CEO of c.technology, says, "We are thrilled to join forces with Torqeedo to revolutionize mobility on water. This collaboration aligns perfectly with our vision of creating connected ecosystems for powersport vehicles, and together, we will bring an unprecedented level of intelligence and efficiency to the marine industry."
