Valoe Corporation (“Valoe”) and Eker Design (“Eker”), a Norwegian company belonging to the Eker Group, have agreed on a product development project for applying solar technology to Eker’s and its customers’ marine vessels. Eker manufactures high-end boats and other marine vessels, e.g., Hydrolift Smart City Ferries. Eker plans to deliver 100 – 200 electric city ferries, annually, with Valoe’s integrated PV solar systems. The project is carried out using Valoe’s standard time and cost based invoicing criteria. The collaboration project will start immediately.

Bård Eker, CEO of the Eker Group: “The visit to Valoe’s factory in Finland and our thorough study of the company’s competencies convinced us that Valoe is the right partner for us to bring solar power to our electric Hydrolift Smart City Ferries. Eker Group has under Hydrolift brand also high-end pleasure and professional boats, so there is a big potential to utilize Valoe’s solar applications in the future. Design, performance, and functionality are the cornerstones of our operations.”

Iikka Savisalo, CEO of Valoe Corporation: “We are pleased to establish a new development project and especially happy about entering to cooperation with the Eker Group.
