Electric boat entrepreneur Gustav Hasselskog wants to invest in Sweden. Now he’s looking for a factory.

Hasselskog started the electric boat manufacturer Candela in 2015. All Candela’s boats have hydro carriers, which means that it flies above the water’s surface when it reaches a certain speed and is master at getting the most out of a battery.

The company’s new boat C-8 is planned to reach customers in 2022, but a factory is needed first. Already today, the production of the older model C-7 takes place in connection with Candela’s office on Lidingö.

“We need a patch of land, preferably north of Stockholm, where we can start with 5 to 10 thousand square meters with expansion opportunities to triple the area in the long run,” Hasselskog says to DI Digital.
