About Echandia

Echandia in its current form started in 2018. With a long history in engine design, ship design system integration, and sub-sea electrification our DNA is in the maritime industry.

The idea for meeting the demand of large-scale maritime electrification came when designing solutions for naval submarines. With the same attention to detail required for sub-sea vessels – an energy storage solution to be used in maritime transportation, shipping and other heavy-duty applications was built. Since then, many landmarks have been reached.

Echandia work with the worlds’ largest shipyards and system integrators to build new vessels and retrofit existing vessels with batteries for hybridization, full propulsion, and increased energy efficiency.
