DEUTZ AG Annual Report 2020

Clean, fast – and simply better

Electric motors from global market leader Torqeedo are helping to protect the Earth’s climate and its waters, and demand for them is growing globally.

The ecosystems in clean waterways and bodies of water are vital to life. Whether used in passenger ferries in Amsterdam, fishing boats on Lake Victoria, in barges on Germany’s rivers and canals, or in marine systems worldwide, Torqeedo engines help to significantly reduce emissions from boats.

Torqeedo operates in over 100 countries

The second-largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Victoria is home to more than 200 unique species of flora and fauna and supports the lives of 50 million people. More and more species of fish are facing extinction due to pollution from fuels and oils, which is why a start-up in the Kenyan town of Mbita is now leasing Torqeedo electric motors to fishermen and providing training, main­tenance, and battery recharging using solar power. The fishermen can thus set off each day knowing that they are contributing to a more sustainable future.

Torqeedo has been part of the DEUTZ Group since 2017 and now has a global service network. Its branch in Bangkok was established in 2017. The growing focus on water pollution control in the Asia-Pacific region is creating a great deal of private and public interest in electric drives for marine applications. Thailand’s capital city has revived its canal system and established a network of electric water taxis as well as rail transportation. By the end of 2020, eight ferries with a Torqeedo drive system were serving Bangkok; twelve more are being built. For fewer emissions and less noise, for more sustainability.
