The Ocean Hybrid Platform generates renewable energy with PV, small wind, and wave energy between offshore wind turbines.

  • Schweizer Kapital Global Impact Fund AG reaffirms financial and strategic commitment to SINN Power GmbH in a Series B financing round

  • Ocean Hybrid Platform about to enter the market with approvals and long-term testing in Heraklion

  • ModTroniX as a key element for the implementation of hybrid renewable energy projects in the maritime environment and smart grid market


The Schweizer Kapital Global Impact Fund AG, an impact fund of the Schweizer Kapital Group, initiated and financed by Umut Ertan, continues the €4.7 million commitment already made in 2018 as the main investor in SINN Power to provide financial and strategic support for the upcoming market entry. As part of the Series B financing round, the Schweizer Kapital Global Impact Fund AG invests another €3.0 million and becomes the main shareholder and sole investor in the Gauting-based SINN Power GmbH through the further acquisition of shares.


SINN Power GmbH has been developing technologies and solutions for the generation, storage, and feed-in of renewable energies in the maritime environment since 2015. Thanks to the successful developments of recent years, SINN Power is now about to enter the market with the OHP (Ocean Hybrid Platform) and the modular power electronics components (ModTroniX). The necessary certificates and approvals are subject to demanding, and lengthy tests, carried out at the pilot project site in Heraklion (Greece), among other places.


The renewed investment of the Schweizer Kapital Global Impact Fund AG is now to push the market entry of the technologies and direct the focus of the SINN Power GmbH on developing the target markets. The expansion of the sales network, which deals with the acquisition, planning, and implementation of projects, was recently strengthened in the regions EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Asia) and the Americas (Central and South America).

The OHP, in combination with ModTroniX, enables smart and modular projects for a sustainable future, as a source of renewable energy for grid feed-in, production of hydrogen, seawater desalination, or supply of remote coastal or island regions.
