Danfoss Editron and Volvo Penta sign partnership agreement

Volvo Penta and Danfoss’s Editron division have signed a partnership agreement that will optimize their combined electromobility solutions for the marine industry.

By cooperating on research and development, the two companies will work to deliver ‘robust, reliable and efficient’ electrification packages to a wider segment of the marine commercial market.

This will be supported by working together from the deign phase through to installation, commissioning and aftermarket support, ultimately creating a seamless customer experience.

The move will support the Volvo Group’s Science Based Targets initiative. Launched in 2020, this involves future-proofing the business in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.

It will also support the efforts at Danfoss to become CO2 neutral by 2030.

Speaking about the new partnership, Heléne Mellquist, president of Volvo Penta, said: “Our vision is to become a leader in sustainable power solutions, where we are driving transformation on land and at sea towards a more sustainable society.

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership! By leveraging the strengths of both our companies we will be able to support our customers’ transformation journey by providing world-leading electrified solutions.”

Volvo Penta and Danfoss’s Editron division have already teamed up on a series of projects in the marine sector, including the first hybrid crew transfer vessel for Danish company MHO-Co and windfarm operator Ørsted.

“We’re excited to officially join forces with Volvo Penta,” said Kimmo Rauma, vice president of Danfoss’s Editron division. “Ultimately, we want to create a sustainable solution and find the ideal fit for the market.

“The marine sector urgently requires zero-emission solutions that offer ultimate manoeuvrability, precision, and comfort capable of operating in robust commercial marine environments. Together, the two companies have the winning combination of skills and technology to create unique solutions and drive sustainability in the industries they operate in.”
