The two protagonists that have already collaborated in the past are Volvo Penta and Danfoss Editron division: they have signed a partnership agreement that will drive the transformation towards sustainable power solutions within the marine industry.
By leveraging their combined strengths, the two companies will work to optimize offerings to provide electromobility solutions for the marine industry. By cooperating on research and development activities, Volvo Penta and Danfoss’ Editron division will rapidly deliver robust, reliable, and efficient electrification packages to a broader part of the marine commercial market.
By working together from the design phase right through to installation, commissioning, and aftermarket support, the desire is to secure a totally seamless experience of the delivery of vessels. This joint approach – from sales to aftermarket – will make things easier for customers, operators, and yards in the future.
«We’re excited – said Kimmo Rauma, vice president of Danfoss’ Editron division – to officially join forces with Volvo Penta. Ultimately, we want to create a sustainable solution and find the ideal fit for the market. The marine sector urgently requires zero-emission solutions that offer ultimate manoeuvrability, precision, and comfort capable of operating in robust commercial marine environments. Together, the two companies have the winning combination of skills and technology to create unique solutions and drive sustainability in the industries they operate in».
