Energy Technology Experts Merge to form eCap Marine

Following the need on ships for emission-reducing energy technology, eCap Mobility and Hybrid Port Energy have both merged – to become eCap Marine.

Since the merger in January this year, the combined companies have been successfully offering a diverse range of technological solutions for environmentally-friendly energy sources, in professional and leisure shipping and port and energy technology, including LNG, methanol, ammonia and hydrogen.

Managing Director of eCap Marine, Lars Ravens says: “With our many years of expertise, we have joined forces to respond to the needs of the shipping industry now and in the future.

Due to the increasing demand for emission-reducing technology, we decided to provide system supplies under the well-known ‘eCap‘ brand, since we have been successful with this as a retrofitter for quite some time. To date, eCap Mobility, founded by Dirk Lehmann, has been involved in the electrification of vehicles for six years, while HPE, a subsidiary of Becker Marine Systems and also managed by Lehmann, has been driving the development of environmentally-friendly power generation with the Becker PowerPac and the Becker Power Barge.“

eCap Marine now offers these climate-friendly technologies and concepts for professional and leisure shipping, with a focus on fuel cells in combination with batteries. Becker PowerPacs can also be equipped with ‘Compact Battery Rack’ (COBRA) systems from Becker Marine Systems, which are based on environmentally-friendly Lithium Ferro Phosphate (LFP) technology.

Small and medium-sized coastal, inland waterway and harbour vessels are converted by eCap Marine or supported in a newbuildling. Privately-owned boats and yachts can also be retrofitted for hybridization. eCap Marine is available to shipyards as a reliable system partner.

eCap Marine supplies engines with control electronics, power technology and fuel cells with tank technology. Along with maintenance, servicing and repair of the components. While avoiding or significantly reducing hazardous emissions such as sulphur dioxide, fine dust and nitrogen oxides, which would otherwise occur during operation of ships.
