Transporting MobyFly’s new zero-carbon boat with our 100% electric truck

Innovative and eco-friendly projects are very important to Friderici Special. That is why we are very pleased to share with you our latest project which took place at the beginning of September 2022, and which consisted in transporting a carbon neutral boat with our 100% electric truck.

The boat in question is the smallest of a new series of electric “hydrofoils” launched by Swiss start-up Mobyfly. Named MobyFly 10, the model won the international innovation competition in Osaka, Japan, last February. She may be at the 2025 World Expo in the same city, in the hope of equipping the fleet that will transport visitors to its bay.

For her transport from the Geneva factory, which handled the electrical part of the boat, to her home port of Bouveret in the Valais, our electric truck was chosen. This 40-tonne alternative propulsion vehicle is 100% CO2 neutral and has a battery capacity of 900kWh. This truck is a world premiere for electromobility, which is now being used in the energy-intensive heavy and special transport sector. Together with a second equivalent model, this model is the result of a collaboration with Avesco Rent, Galliker Transport and Futuricum, who share a commitment to sustainable development.
