Vattenfall and Stromma to electrify Amsterdam canal boats

Vattenfall, a state-owned Swedish multinational power company, and Stromma Group, a sightseeing bus and boat service provider operational in six countries, are investing in emission-free, electric sightseeing boats.

They will kick off their project in Amsterdam, and electrify Stromma’s boat fleet to provide fossil-free transportation. Vattenfall will supply the battery system for the emission-free operation of the city’s canal boats, which will be mandatory as of 2025.


“Our ‘Power-as-a-Service’ concept is based on us owning, managing, and taking responsibility for the operation and maintenance of electrical infrastructure. This means that our customers can focus on their core business,” says Maria Lindberg, responsible for the electrification of heavy transport at Vattenfall Network Solutions.

“We look forward to working with Vattenfall on electrifying our boats in Amsterdam as a first step. We are facing a major shift in our operations, and this partnership is an important step in our continued sustainability work,” says Patric Sjöberg, President and CEO of Stromma Group.
