GRSE To Develop Electric Tugs E-VOLT 50 With Partners

E-VOLT 50′ represents a bold step towards a cleaner and greener future for the maritime sector



Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Shift Clean Energy (Shift), Seatech Solutions International (Seatech), and the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) to develop electric tugs named E-VOLT 50.
This project’s target is to reduce carbon emissions, enhance operational efficiency and set new benchmarks for performance and environmental sustainability within the tugboat industry. It aligns with India’s aspiration to become the ‘global hub for green shipbuilding’ by 2030.

GRSE will construct the tugboat based on the design by Seatech, while Shift will provide energy storage solutions. ABS will oversee the construction and design process, ensuring adherence to all applicable regulatory standards and certifying safety, reliability, and compliance, the company informed the bourses.


GRSE has already made progress towards the development of green vessels. The shipyard is currently constructing a zero-emission electric ferry for the West Bengal government, capable of accommodating 150 passengers. Upon its commissioning, this ferry is expected to revolutionise passenger services along the Hooghly and other major rivers.
