That’s A Wrap: VoltSafe CTO Impresses the Crowd at the Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo

VoltSafe Blog Team – November 9, 2022

Last week, Sanad Aridah, VoltSafe’s CTO, successfully demonstrated and showcased the company’s flagship technology to key players in the marine industry at the Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo in Houston, Texas. The Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo is one of the biggest conferences for marine professionals in North America. It offers a chance for people in the marine industry (such as marina operators, port authorities, naval architects, and shipyards) to talk to manufacturers and suppliers about next-generation electric and hybrid maritime propulsion and port infrastructure.

This show presented Sanad with a centre-stage opportunity to share how VoltSafe’s Marine solution is a significant improvement over antiquated shore power systems. He demonstrated how VoltSafe Marine stays connected with magnets instead of prongs, resists corrosion, and eliminates arcing that leads to boat and marina fires. In addition, its accompanying APP helps users manage energy more efficiently. VoltSafe Marine truly sets a new standard in shore power electrical safety.

Sanad was joined by VoltSafe’s VP of Partnerships & Sales, Philipp Garber in Houston, where they managed to establish numerous connections within the marine industry, and are looking forward to building these licensing opportunities and partnerships in the weeks and months to come. Next up for VoltSafe in terms of trade show travel, Sanad, along with VoltSafe CEO, Trevor Burgess, and Sales Associate, Gaurav Parmar, will head to METSTRADE in Amsterdam November 15th and 16th. METS is known as the world’s largest trade show for the marine industry.  

But that’s not all for the VoltSafe team. On Nov 16th and 17th, VoltSafe will have a booth at the Best Defence Conference in London, Ontario. Philipp Garber and VoltSafe’s Power Engineer, Shahbaj Dhillon, will show off VoltSafe’s patented flagship technology and products to defence industry attendees.
