The Magonis MagBuoy charging buoy will showcase next year between January 21–29
Serving as both a buoy and a floating charging station, the Magonis MagBuoy charging buoy is scheduled for its reveal at the 2023 Boot Düsseldorf boat show in Germany. The Spanish yard claims its the world’s first “charging buoy” and is compatible with all types of electric boats.
The Magonis MagBuoy charging buoy has a built-in battery and is powered through an underwater cable to a city’s grid. Seafarers only need to drop this dandy, yellow device on the water and plug its charging wire into their electric boat to get things going. In about two hours, our boat should be fully charged.
“Making electric boats, and developing technology like the MAGBuoy that charges any electric boat, means that more people who want to switch from petrol to electric have the infrastructure and confidence to do so,” said Magonis CEO, François Jozic.
Installing the buoy is super simple, according to Magonis. Therefore, it has the potential to enhance the current charging infrastructure within the ocean and put it more in line with that of the automobile sector. Additionally, it doesn’t require a dock or a marina for energy.
In addition to the Magonis MagBuoy charging buoy, two variants of the Magonis Wave e-550 will also make their premiere at Boot Düsseldorf. The pair on exhibit will be powered by a 30kW MAG Power electric thruster, which claims to have a peak speed of 22 knots. The range-topper can go around 30 nautical miles or run for 12 hours at a speed of three knots on a single charge. Additionally, you can fast-charge from empty to full in just under two hours.
