what we do
Hydrotroniks is a collective of engineers, designers, and environmental scientists who work together to create electric based solutions for pleasure boats and commercial boats. We work with our partners to develop new technology and provide clean alternatives to current boat engines by making use of electric energy storage, and propulsions options. We coordinate recharging station installations and partner with academic institutions to advance energy storage research.
Hydrotroniks is designing electric drives for commercial fishing vessels and leisure boats. We also design countless solutions from gauges and instruments to our own patented safety solutions. We develop technology that will modernize the fishing industry.
Hydrotroniks offers an array of services for vessel owners or ship builders. Whether you want to retrofit your vessel or train your team to work with our products, we can help.
We believe that our products will transform the commercial fisheries for harvesters, organisations and communities as well. Contact us to find out more about how our products will generate sustainable economies for your organisation.
Hydrotroniks was founded in 2016 with the goal of rejuvenating the traditional fisheries sector and creating positive change in communities across Atlantic Canada.
Our products will provide everyone involved in the commercial fisheries, from the harvesters, to the processors,
to the consumers with more sustainable economies and environments so as to preserve Atlantic Canada's
traditional livelihoods for future generations.
