New electric marine
In 2008, Anne Kloppenborg started converting large speedboats into vessels powered by electric propulsion: ‘more power, less noise’. Now, the founder of New Electric is a specialist in electric propulsion for all kinds of sailing vessels and other vehicles. From vintage cars to heavy freight vehicles. The close partnership with Dick Gilles and the Marine department involves every possible powertrain and electrical engineering on water. For the fitting and conversion of outboard motors and sailing yachts, from electric sloops to tour boats, but especially for work boats and pontoons. Worldwide. The most recent centrepiece for Dick Gilles is a tugboat with a certificate for a combined weight of 100 tons, which will be operating in the Port of Amsterdam.
The story of New Electric could come straight out of a boy’s adventure book.
