Electric Power Systems (EPS) a leading global electric powertrain supplier for the aviation industry has entered into a strategic partnership with Regent Craft, where it will supply EP Systems’ power integration technology for the manufacturing of REGENT’s all-electric seagliders, poised to revolutionize transportation by offering high-speed, zero-emission transportation along coastal water ways.

REGENT has already obtained $8 billion in orders from major airlines and leading ferry operators in five different continents. REGENT’s 12-passenger seaglider, Viceroy, is expected to enter service by mid-decade.

EPS state-of-the-art power integration technology will enable the seaglider to service routes up to 180 miles on a single charge, operating quietly, reducing noise pollution, ideal for eco-sensitive areas as near residential areas and wildlife habitats.

REGENT joins a growing list of EPS customers, which includes NASA, the FAA, Boeing, Diamond Aircraft, Plana, Safran, Supernal and VoltAero. The company also provides its electric powertrain system to X-57, Boeing’s CAV (Cargo Air Vehicle), and Bell Helicopter’s hybrid Advanced Air Mobility aircraft (Bell Nexus).
