Coastal Workboats has collaborated with EST-Floattech, supplying battery systems for their Electric-Landing Utility Vessel (E-LUV) and Shore-based Power Supply System (SPSS).

Supported by a £6 million grant from the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, this partnership signifies a move towards cleaner maritime operations, with the E-LUV set to be the UK’s first commercial electric workboat.

The vessel will showcase EST-Floattech’s Octopus High Energy battery system, demonstrating the potential for energy storage solutions in maritime applications.

The SPSS will also benefit from EST-Floattech’s battery system, integrated by MJR Power & Automation and housed by Renew Marine, ensuring safety while reducing emissions in the maritime sector.
