Energy Solutions to distribute electric motors
WaterWorld has signed Energy Solutions as exclusive UK marine distributor for its range of electric inboard motors.
WaterWorld manufactures a range of 48V DC electric motors, designed to replace small diesel engines in boats up to 10m and larger canal craft.
Energy Solutions will initially sell two models - 4.0 kW and 10.0 kW – as well as being the service partner for the UK, carrying stock of spare parts.
“We see a great potential for the WaterWorld electric motors in the UK market,” said Energy Solutions’ Hugh Cunningham. “This is an affordable electric option and easy to install – just one unit for motor and controller, no water-cooling system and a direct connection to the shaft, without any gearbox.”
“As the demand on the marine industry grows to provide clean, quiet, as well as affordable alternatives to diesel engines the team at Energy Solutions are confident that the motors will satisfy boat builders and end user requirements.”
The models include a motor and controller in one unit on adjustable engine supports, thrust bearings, relay, digital colour touch screen display and throttle.
They are designed to be a direct replacement for a traditional diesel engine both in size and cost and are suitable for narrowboats, small coastal craft and inland waterway fleets that are looking to reduce both noise and emissions.
WaterWorld will launch a range of larger models during 2019 and Energy Solutions will work with the company to eventually distribute the entire range alongside the Dutch distributor De Stille Boot that will provide sales and application support to the team.
