Swedish manufacturer of electric boats X Coast took the built-in battery supplier Kreisel Electric in a five-year deal worth 50 million euros.

The flagship X Shore model, the Eelex 8000, which has a 225 kW engine, will run exclusively on two Kreisel KBP 63 batteries with a total capacity of 126 kW / h.

Kreisel Electric states that its patented modular immersion battery technology complies with the DNV marine standard and is designed to withstand the harshest environmental conditions. It offers “unmatched durability, high security and maximum performance”. The company’s existing customer base includes commercial applications, electric motorsport, charging infrastructure and marine solutions.

Kreisel Electric and X Shore are working to eliminate the carbon footprint from their manufacturing processes. The battery accounts for a large share of the Eelex 8000’s carbon footprint. Companies will strive to obtain sophisticated materials such as cobalt in the most socially and environmentally responsible way, and aim to establish full battery chain traceability by 2025.

“We are excited to continue our global expansion hand in hand with Kreisel Electric,” said Jenny Case, CEO of X Shore. “Having provided the best batteries on the market for the next five years, X Shore is here to set the industry a course for long-term sustainability.”

“We view X Shore as the market leader in electric recreational boats with huge growth potential,” said Jennifer Preston, CEO of Kreisel Electric. “We are proud to supply X Shore with our patented battery technology, which provides significant benefits in terms of performance, safety, service life, modularity and cost.”
