Electric Power Systems selected as electric aviation battery provider for Elfly's cutting-edge research seaplane demonstrator
Tuesday, 25 July 2023

Electric Power Systems, a leading provider of advanced energy storage solutions, today announced it has been selected as the battery provider for Elfly's highly anticipated all-electric seaplane.

The companies announced their partnership for the research demonstrator program today at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2023, where both companies are participating. Under the terms of the agreement, EPS will deliver its EPiC battery line for the initial demonstration to incorporate upgradable energy solutions.

Elfly has embarked on a groundbreaking research initiative aimed at developing an amphibious plane with the projection of having 15 to 20 Noemi (No Emissions) passenger-ready crafts by 2030. EPS's state-of-the-art battery systems have demonstrated unparalleled performance, safety, and longevity, making them an ideal choice for Elfly's research objectives.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Elfly on its pioneering research project,” said Nathan Millecam, CEO of Electric Power Systems. “We are confident that our advanced battery technology will contribute significantly to the success of the project and we are excited to have been selected.”

Both EPS and Elfly are committed to prioritizing safety, performance, and sustainability in their respective domains. This shared commitment, coupled with their combined expertise and technological prowess, positions the collaboration as a powerful catalyst for accelerating the adoption of electric aviation and revolutionizing travel.

“We are delighted to welcome EPS as an early and important supplier for our first demonstrator,” said Elfly CEO and Founder Eric Lithun. “Their team's highly relevant experience supporting battery technology on complementary, innovative programs, positions them well for our next-generation seaplane, which we intend to build and fly under our own Air Operator's Certificate in Norway.”

EPS adds Elfly to a growing list of customers, which includes the FAA, Boeing, Diamond Aircraft, Plana, REGENT, Safran, Supernal, Ampaire, Aura Aero, and VoltAero. The company also provides its electric powertrain system to Boeing's CAV (Cargo Air Vehicle) and Bell Helicopter's hybrid Advanced Air Mobility aircraft (Bell Nexus).
