The Norwegian electric boat Evoy1 with Evoy's propulsion system has already set an unofficial world record for series-produced electric boats, in a PolarcirkEL 860 IEP from Helgeland Plast. But the record of 55 knots was not formally recorded due to a lack of official Olympic timing equipment.
Under HavExpo in May, everything is set for an approved record of a world record. The experiment will take place close to the exhibition grounds and will be a spectacular experience.
It is the company Evoy that has developed the electric powertrain of this boat which is primarily developed for use in industries such as aquaculture and tourism. The company's complete powertrain can be easily mounted in other boats between 20 and 40 feet.
