It was installed at the
Marina di Stabia
Aqua 75, the first fast charging point for electric boats in the Gulf of Naples. The partnership between the Campania-based marina and
Aqua superPower
, a leading company in the design of “charging stations” for boats, will allow all owners of electric-powered boats to charge their batteries to 75 kW of power, greatly shortening the time it takes to fully recharge.

Where the new rapid charging point for electric boats is located

Marina di Stabia is a fairly young port, established in 2007 in a unique location, straddling Castellammare di Stabia and the much-visited Pompeii. Those who decide to moor here can count on a capacity of 789 berths for boats and super yachts up to 90 meters long. There is no shortage of state-of-the-art facilities and services, which have also earned the Marina several awards over the years, including a shipbuilding area equipped with a 220-ton travel lift.

From today, Marina di Stabia also becomes the leading eco-friendly marina in the Gulf of Naples, a benchmark for green boating. Its strategic location allows all boaters passing through the area from Ischia to Capri via Sorrento to take advantage of the service. Moreover, this first step in Campania will hopefully lead to the creation of a full-fledged fast-charging network that, in addition to the Gulf of Naples, will serve, for example, the areas of Positano and Amalfi and the island of Procida.

How the Aqua superPower charger works

The new Aqua 75 charger installed by Aqua superPower is part of the first network of fast chargers for electric boats. This charger is capable of delivering 75 kW of power to two vessels simultaneously, or 150 kW of total power. An output of 75 kW saves a lot of time for charging compared to conventional shore power. It depends on the capacity of the batteries, but in general, full recharging with Aqua 75 for an average boat ranges from 30 to a maximum of 90 minutes, compared to several hours with a normal power line. The Aqua 75 charger is specially designed for use in marine environments; in fact, it is IP65 certified against dust and splashing water. Users of Aqua superPower “columns” can initiate charging using a special card (via RFID technology) or the very convenient smartphone app. From the app interface, you can reserve charging slots, pay, and view the map with all Aqua superPower charging points: most convenient wherever you are.
