Barrus has announced the exciting news of another partnership and the introduction of the WhisperPower brand to their ever-growing portfolio at Southampton Boat Show 2021.
WhisperPower, based in the Netherlands has appointed E. P. Barrus as their exclusive national distributor in the UK. Established in 2007, WhisperPower has years of experience in the field of combined generator and electronic systems and power management, with extensive knowledge of applications in the commercial and recreational marine and mobile and commercial vehicle markets.
WhisperPower develops, manufactures and supplies smart electrical systems providing ultra-quiet, vibration-free, cost-effective off-grid electrical power from 500 watts to 100 kW. This extensive portfolio includes generators, inverters, battery chargers and hybrid-style power systems.
Ben Allen, General Manager for the Marine Leisure Division at Barrus, commented, “The introduction of the WhisperPower range expands our electrical systems portfolio enabling our boat builders, dealers and retailers to offer innovative, non-polluting, sustainable energy systems for all types of vessels.”
WhisperPower’s CEO and Founder Roel J ter Heide is excited about the newly established partnership. “I consider E. P. Barrus as the right partner to sell WhisperPower‘s products and systems to all the relevant markets in the UK: both recreational and professional marine and mobile-off-grid markets. The recently launched OctoPower systems, which are based on a
hybrid principle similar to technology used in the e-mobility markets, will become an important activity.”
“E.P. Barrus is supporting our ultimate goal to provide usable energy without the need to burn fossil fuels. However, practicality means that we need to transition away from the traditional set up of a large generator on board. OctoPower’s use of an all-in-one system is accelerating this transition by using minimal amounts of fuel, only when necessary and in a super-quiet and reliable way. The sales figures and key customers show that this system is finding new outlets across many sectors of leisure and industry and we will continue to build on this success.” The new agreement commenced on 1st September 2021. WhisperPower generators and power equipment products will be presented at Southampton Boat Show on the Barrus Marine Equipment Stand J316 and the main Barrus Stand E050.
