Our idea of sustainable design

To reach the 1.5-degree goal in the Paris Agreement, each of us must not account for more than 1 ton of man-made CO2/year in 2030 and go net zero before 2050. We aims for Freepower to be climate neutral from the factory and through its entire life cycle until end of life and recycling. We call it sustainable design.

Sustainable engineering & product design


From the first brushstroke, Freepower is designed to reduce climate impact. The basic philosophy is to design the boat for long life and be multifunctional. It maximizes the time to recycling and reduces the need for more boat types in the market. 


The electric boat Freepower is self-sufficient with energy from the sun


The hull's hydrodynamic profile is energy optimized for electric operation and displacement speed



Freepower has an iconic, timeless but classic Nordic expression.


It should be easy to own and run Freepower. The autonomous charging system takes care of the charging for you so you can enjoy the ride instead.


Dashboard control in an app

Instead of traditional meters, monitoring of all systems are done by an app for tablets and phones.

Sustainable production

Local production


To reduce CO2 emissions from transport, we choose to produce and install Freepower locally in Norway. It is logical and logistical smart considering that the aluminum, driveline, bottom paint and app are developed and produced locally in Norway. Even wreck plastic is a local natural resource. 


Sustainable maintenance


The electric driveline and the tough materials in Freepower require minimal maintenance which makes it easy to own a boat. It's not just nature that likes it.


Sustainable life cycle


The hull makes up 85% of the total weight of the materials in Freepower, which makes it the most important material from an environmental point of view.


Jotun, which is at the forefront of the development of antifouling paints that both fit aluminum boats and are gentle on shallow coastal ecosystems in our archipelago.


The second largest component by weight is the battery, whose the casing is made of aluminum.


We collaborate with Norwegian Trash, whose business concept is to manufacture new wreck plastic products.

The third largest component is the azimuth pod from SeaDrive, which is mainly made of aluminum bronze and stainless steel.


We have carefully selected materials. The materials used in Freepower must both withstand a tough maritime environment for many years and at the same time create the least possible CO2 footprint. Not only during the materials' own lifespan in Freepower but also during future lives and in their value chains. 


Sustainable boating

If we want to continue to stay in nature in the future, we must adapt technology to the conditions of nature and its physical laws. Through sustainable design, Freepower eliminates climate footprints, sound pollution, surges and emissions. We become one with nature.
