UQM Technologies (AMEX:UQM) has supplied a PowerPhase Select 145 electric drive, in partnership with Fort Lauderdale’s ReGen Nautic, for the Goldfish 23 eFusion.
The Norway-built day boat has achieved 47 knots, solely on electricity, and won the 2012 Boat of the Year Innovation Award at the Dusseldorf Boat Show, UQM says.
“Our partnership with ReGen Nautic enabled UQM to expand into the marine market and demonstrate the effectiveness of electric propulsion while driving additional revenue growth,” UQM president and CEO Eric Ridenour said in a release.
“UQM PowerPhase propulsion systems deliver the performance and efficiency in a compact package that we believe can propel electric propulsion to near term commercialization in the boat market,” ReGen Nautic president and COO Pierre Caouette says in the UQM announcement.
Goldfish plans to deploy as many as 10 additional eFusion boats this year, UQM says. “Future plans include higher volume production of the jet drive propulsion system using UQM’s new PowerPhase Pro 135.”
Separately, UQM reported increased sales and a narrower net loss for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31.
