Finnish electric propulsion company Oceanvolt announced a new deal with Victron Energy.

The companies will integrate their products to work as a unified system that will form the base of the Oceanvolt SEA (Silent Electric Autonomy) concept. The Oceanvolt SEA system enables air conditioning and other appliances to run without the use of generators by converting the electricity from the propulsion system battery into 220 VAC.

Oceanvolt will offer customers systems that use Victron Energy’s charger/inverters, solar charger controllers and other electric components, together with its propulsion system. Oceanvolt’s electric propulsion systems have been installed in more than 50 customer boats.

“Victron Energy’s products perfectly complement our propulsion system, and together they offer our customers the comforts of home while at sea,” Oceanvolt CEO Timo Jaakkola said in a statement.

"The Oceanvolt system impressed us. It is a mature and finished system. With this partnership our customers can offer an electric propulsion system which works as a part of a boat’s existing electrical network,” Victron Energy managing director Matthijs Vader said.
