• Kaohsiung City government in TAIWAN built first 5 e-boats in 2009 for the tourist cruising on Love River as GEN-I
  • In 2012 we join GEN-II project for another 5 e-boats with the following enhancement:
    • Charge direct from Solar panel to battery bank
    • More stable and reliable of LiFePO4 Battery
    • Prolong the life cycle of Battery Pack
    • Enlarge the Solar power capacity
    • Well performance of Charging and Discharging System


The GEN-II started its commercial voyage on Sep 28, 2012, and after its successful operation for six months, in March 2013, by request of the Kaohsiung City Government, AIDE proceeded with the development of the next generation for the e-boat, to achieve the optimization for the power system as follows:

  • Performance improved from 7 hrs to 8 hrs when cruise is under constant speed.
  • Battery capacity reduced from 52KWh to 48KWh.
  • Large screen HMI synchronous display information.


Progress of GEN-III

  • Improved Performance of 19%
  • Solar charging efficiency enhanced from 86% to 94%
  • Less Demand for Batteries



  • Graphical HMI
  • Waterproof Battery Cabin ( IP65 )
  • BIPV Solar Panel
  • High Efficiency Solar Charger
