What is an Ecobarge?

“An Ecobarge is a floating platform. A modular, scalable mobile pontoon with integrated sustainable technologies for producing and storing energy and water on-or offgrid. Even for charging boats or for cooling fish. Equally suitable in the center of a modern city, at an isolated island, in a rural fishing village or during a crisis.” – Ecobarge
