EST-Floattech will provide a battery system for the purpose-built Electric-Landing Utility Vessel (E-LUV) to be built at Coastal Workboats new yard Stornoway.

This collaboration is realised due to Coastal Workboats receiving a £6 million (€7 million) grant to demonstrate the UK’s first commercial electric workboat and charging station.

The grant, provided by the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition (CMDC), aims to boost the usage of electric workboats in a commercial environment.
