We believe in a world without harmful pollution, so we designed a boat totally self-sufficient by solar energy – and named it Freepower

The project

The project goal is to reduce use of fossil fuel and fight poverty.


The Freepower solar boat is designed to be 100% self-sufficient of energy so there is no need for plug-in charging. The end product will be approx. 6m long, cruise at 5kt with a range of 4h/day without charging.


The prototype is 4,5m long and equipped with a Torqeedo Cruise 2.0, Li-Ion battery and mono crystalline solar panels. The prototype hull is made of aluminum, but other hull materials are investigated for the real product.


The target market is small scale fishing in development countries but other markets suitable for the product can be considered.


The prototype is sponsored by GPBM Industry to promote their Green Investments plan.


A pilot version is under development suitable for test to target market. 


Bjurtech is looking for a business partner or investor for fast growth. Please contact if interested in the project idea.


Why Freepower?

It's quite simple.

Freepower is a boat self-sufficient on energy from the sun.

Financed by micro loans to fishermen in development countries.

Instead of buying fuel, the loan is payed back after 3 years!

Save money for the poor fishermen – and save our planet!
