MobyFly received the Innovation Award among more than 350 participants gathered to attend the 33rd CCIFS France-Switzerland Trade Awards ceremony. A major economic event for all operators involved in bilateral relations, the CCIFS France Switzerland Trade Awards reward companies whose performance illustrates the dynamism and excellence of Franco-Swiss trade.
In the presence of the Swiss ambassador in France, MobyFly and EODev — a young, innovative French SME founded in 2019 — signed a collaboration agreement on May 10, 2022 in Paris to develop the first hydrogen powered MobyFly passenger hydrofoils.
This agreement marks the start of a long-term commitment by MobyFly and EODev to work in close collaboration together. The REXH2® onboard hydrogen generator developed by EODev will enable us to offer private and public operators a hydrogen-powered version of our long-range, high speed hydrofoils.
By utilizing EODev’s technical know-how, we will be on track to deliver our first hydrofoils by 2024 in time to meet the needs of the organizers of major events and public authorities in need of zero-emission passenger shuttles.
MobyFly's first electric hydrofoil is currently scheduled to begin testing on Lake Geneva summer 2022.
Foiling technology is not only pivotal for advancing waterborne transportation in terms of speed and zero-emission efficiency but also for significantly reducing wave impact to protect the environment.
We were thrilled to be part of the fifth edition of the Foiling Week™ Awards and extremely grateful for MobyFly’s recognition and receiving the Commercial Vessels Award.
After winning in the HackOsaka 2022 receiving the Expo 2025 JETRO Osaka award, MobyFly had the honor and pleasure to participate in the inauguration of the new Swiss Consulate in Osaka, paving the way for Expo 2025 Osaka.
The Swiss delegation led by the President of Switzerland, Ignazio Cassis, as well as the Vice-Governor and Mayor of Osaka, Ambassador Nicolas Bideau and the Swiss Consul Dr. Felix Moesner took part in the ceremony for the planned construction of a new Swiss Consulate in the Kansai economic region.
Hack Osaka brings together innovative companies from all over the world to present and compete in the Kansai region of Japan and we’re proud to announce winning the Expo 2025/Jetro Osaka Award at this year's event — the only Swiss company represented.
Dr. Felix Moesner, the Swiss Consular in Osaka, received the award on behalf of MobyFly’s Co-Founders Sue Putallaz and Anders Bringdal.
This award will help to open doors for us to build and develop relationships with leading Japanese companies, and to bring Swiss innovation to the World Expo 2025.
The Kansai region, which includes the cities of Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto, is a massive market with a population of 24.65 million and a GDP of approximately ¥100,050 billion. It is equivalent to the Tokyo-centered metropolitan area as a business location and plays a central role in the economy of western Japan.
MobyFly has announced in summer 2021 the signing of a contract for the construction of nine zero-emission vessels with the Portuguese operator Nosso Tejo. Spread over four years, this agreement covers the pre-ordering of four 60-seat boats and five 300-seat boats.
The contract between MobyFly and the Lisbon-based operator was signed in the presence of the Swiss Ambassador in Portugal, André Regli (standing, center). An operation worth several tens of millions of francs.
