UQM Technologies Inc. has expanded into the marine hybrid-electric market through collaboration with ReGen Nautic USA Inc. to develop multiple UQM PowerPhase-based propulsion systems. ReGen Nautic is working with several marine OEMs to provide these systems as options for powering yachts, trawlers, and larger sailing boats. “Our collaboration with ReGen Nautic showcases the additional growth opportunities when electric propulsion technology is introduced into industries beyond the automotive sector,” said Eric Ridenour, UQM Technologies President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that combining the application knowledge of ReGen Nautic and the electric motor and controller expertise of our company, we can create systems that greatly improve efficiency, increase performance, and offer additional benefits that apply to marine applications.” UQM has a new facility with 40,000 units of annual production capacity for its PowerPhase electric propulsion systems to support the commercial launch of Coda Automotive and other customer applications.
