Amphibious Energy is a privately owned Dutch company, and is specialised in designing transportable, autonomous green energy systems to offshore and onshore off-grid locations.
The company, which has extended knowledge in the field of wind energy and electronics, was founded shortly after the first prototype wind energy container – the EnergyPod was tested beginning 2017. As part of this development, Amphibious Energy has aquired and modified Ventus Nautilus’ specialised and patented wind turbine (operational since 2014), for it to be used specifically in the offshore environment.
Further development resulted in the first Hybrid EnergyPod being built in Q4 2017. With its unique combination of the Nautilus Offshore wind turbine, solar PV panels and battery storage, it is a first of its kind 100% green alternative for applications with limited power requirements. The Hybrid EnergyPod was successfully tested over a period of 18 months on the Maasvlakte II at the Port of Rotterdam.
Production of the Hybrid EnergyPod for the Industry started in 2019. The units will be deployed to Oil & Gas platforms due to be decommissioned in the North Sea.
Amphibious Energy has now moved globally, with agencies in Malaysia and in Brazil.
Our aim is to deliver renewable power and storage solutions, both onshore as well as offshore, which are cost-effective, durable and environmentally friendly.
By developing cutting edge technology and designing efficient renewable energy systems for remote locations, it enables our customers to participate in the energy transition. Our EnergyPod provides an alternative to fuel driven power generators, and allows for longer service intervals. This will reduce fuel costs, man hours and contributes to the environment at the same time.
Current and future projects:
- Enlarging and building the wind turbine with composite
- Hydro-current EnergyPods
- Ventilation systems
- Research and development forms a key part within our company.
