In 2022, Pascal reached a big milestone. With funding from Innovation Norway, we have designed and built an 8 meter fully electric prototype powered by our AirHull technology. The prototype has superior energy efficiency compared to traditional v-hulls, and will pave the way for cleaner and more efficient boats.
Increasing the range for electric boats
One of the biggest headaches for electric boats has been range. Our prototype increases the range in cruise speed compared to conventional electric boats.
Prototype testing in the Oslofjord December 2022
8 m leisure prototype

During 2022 we designed and built the prototype, perfecting it to achieve maximum energy efficiency. We have managed the whole process from design, production, to system integration and implementation.
We are extremely proud to successfully launch this prototype. This has been a dream project for us to be able to prove how our advanced technology can achieve superior energy efficiency. We believe this is the future of electric boating!Carl Rehn, CEO
