Saronic Raises $175 Million in Series B Funding, Valuing Company at $1 Billion




Funding will accelerate Saronic’s growth and further scale production of its autonomous surface vessels for the U.S. Navy and its allies

AUSTIN, Texas, July 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Saronic, a defense technology leader that designs and manufactures autonomous surface vessels (ASVs), today announced a $175 million Series B raise placing the company’s valuation at $1 billion. The funding round was led by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), with participation from both new and existing investors, including 8VC, Caffeinated Capital, Elad Gil, and NightDragon, among others.

Saronic is redefining maritime superiority for the U.S. Navy and its allies by delivering the most effective and advanced ASVs at the speed and scale needed to meet the rapidly growing needs of the Joint Force. Saronic’s ASVs are designed to serve as a force multiplier for the existing Fleet, working alongside manned systems to allow naval forces to go farther and do more with less risk to life and mission. 

“We are creating an entirely new capability for the maritime domain, one that delivers naval power without the costs and delays of a shipyard,” said Saronic CEO Dino Mavrookas. “As the future of naval warfare will rely on manned and unmanned teaming, we must build solutions that easily integrate into the existing fleet and can be produced at scale to meet any emerging threat. We are grateful to our investment partners who believe so strongly in Saronic’s ability to meet that need.”

Saronic’s investor group is composed of firms committed to ensuring that the U.S. military maintains its decisive advantage in the face of an increasingly complex and competitive global threat landscape through the integration of advanced technology and innovative capabilities that truly meet the needs of the warfighter. 

“Our nation’s future depends on us continuing to build and deploy the best, most innovative technology” said Katherine Boyle, General Partner at a16z. “Saronic is developing the solutions we need to protect the warfighter and stay ahead of our adversaries, and we are proud to support their continued growth.”

This new investment will accelerate Saronic’s growth both domestically and internationally. At home, it will allow further expansion of Saronic’s in-house manufacturing capabilities and enable increased production of all its ASV models. Additionally, it will advance the research and development of new autonomous capabilities for naval and maritime forces, including increased technology and payload integration with government and commercial partners. Internationally, this investment will support Saronic’s expansion to more fully serve U.S. allies and partners in key markets.

“To deter China and other adversaries, the United States and our allies must bring intelligent, autonomous new capabilities to naval warfare,” said Alex Moore, Partner at 8VC. “Saronic delivers these capabilities on a relevant scale and timeline, and has enlisted the top engineers and operators in the industry.”

Saronic’s family of ASVs includes Spyglass (6′), Cutlass (14′) and Corsair, its largest model, which is currently in development and testing. Each vessel features integrated autonomous capabilities to meet a customer’s specific requirements and can carry diverse payloads in communication- and GPS-denied environments. Through the vertical integration of hardware and software as well as the use of a Modular Open Systems Architecture (MOSA), Saronic’s ASVs deliver greater interoperability at a price point that makes them attritable. Having a cost-effective capability that can be deployed without putting human operators in harm’s way increases the survivability of the fleet and enables commanders to engage in situations where the risk is too high to deploy a traditional manned system.

Summit-Friendship Solar Village Receives Reuters’ Global Energy Transition Awards 2024




SINGAPORE, July 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The ‘Summit-Friendship Solar Village’ project, located in Kabilpur within the Gaibandha district of Bangladesh, has received the prestigious Reuters’ Global Energy Transition Awards 2024 under the ‘Projects of Impact’ category in New York, USA on 25th June 2024. Among 500 entries this year from around the globe, this project was nominated for its concrete results in terms of improved energy affordability, and compensation for losses to improve local resilience for climate change.

This 57.6 kW scalable solar microgrid now benefits the 3,000 inhabitants of Kabilpur, Gaibandha. Kabilpur itself is a char—a remote sedimentary landmass found within a river—but finds itself ideally placed to act as hub for neighbouring chars within the Jamuna River, upon which it is situated.

“Summit wants to serve 100% of Bangladesh with infrastructure such as electricity and communication. Most chars fall outside the national grid. I believe these chars, like the rest of Bangladesh, deserve electricity. The award-winning NGO, Friendship, has done wonders. It’s a privilege to provide solar energy to the 3,000 people of Kabilpur Char in association with Friendship,” remarked Muhammed Aziz Khan, Chairman of Summit Power International.

“Anyone who has seen the Jamuna River in its full might will understand that mainline power grids are not really possible here. On the other hand, this solar grid will provide income-generating opportunities and livelihoods, as well as opportunities for children’s education in order for hope and dignity to thrive. We want to thank Summit for its support,” said Runa Khan, the founder of Friendship.

The solar village plays an integral role in allowing people from these isolated communities to have access to “modern” amenities, and have longer operational hours for both business and commerce, alongside academics and home use. Additionally, renewable solar energy also equates to less reliance on traditional kerosene lamps, which burn fossil fuels with toxic consequences.

About Summit Power International 

Summit Group is the largest infrastructure conglomerate in Bangladesh. Summit Power International Ltd (SPI), headquartered in Singapore, is the largest Independent Power Producer (IPP) in Bangladesh reflecting 17% of Bangladesh’s total private installed capacity and 7% of nation’s total installed capacity. In addition, it owns and operates a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) vessel and supplies 500 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd) of regasified LNG to Bangladesh. In 2019, Summit’s FSRU received equity investment from Mitsubishi Corporation. In 2019, JERA Co., Inc. (JERA), had acquired a 22% stake in Summit Power International. Recently, it has proposed the development of the country’s third FSRU and the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has provided in-principle approval of the proposal in mid-June 2023. Most notably, the Meghnaghat II, which is a dual-fuel CCGT GE H Class plant with gross capacity of 590 MW on LNG, achieved the commercial operation date milestone on 26 April 2024.
