A01 - VHL-Nordwin Zonnebootteam - NL

The technologies in solar-powered racing are constantly changing. Partly because rules change, more innovation is also allowed in the A-class. This involves, for example, using (much lighter) solar cells instead of (heavy) standard solar panels. In 2017, some teams have already applied this technique. Also, hydrofoils are emerging within the A-class. In order to continue to compete in the top of the A-class in the coming years, we will continue to innovate in new techniques and applications where the focus is also on the use of sustainable materials.

A02 - HAN Solarboat - NL

The HAN Solarboat, called the Photon, is a boat that sails on solar energy. This boat is worked by enthusiastic students from various study programs and young professionals. They participate in national and international races with the Photon. IIME provides the facilities of the workshop and offers professional support from the field. Every internship period a new team works on the HAN Solarboat. At IIME you as a student get the opportunity to work independently on the development of the Photon.

A04 - Solar Team Sneek - NL

The Solar Team ROC Friese Poort consists of 8 students from ROC Friese Poort in Sneek. After a strict selection procedure, the team was formed from several relevant departments of the MBO school. The studies Electrotechniek, Watersportindustrie, Mechanical Engineering and Maritime Techniques are represented in it. Organizational, creative, commercial, technical, theoretical and practical talents contribute to this project. Throughout the year, the team will be busy adjusting and racing with the new solar boat, Sinnefugel. Inspired by its rich history in the A-class, the team is keen to produce the most efficient boat for the top class this year. Sinnefugel has only one goal: to conquer the title in the top class.

A05 - Sinnergy Solar Team - NL

The name of Sinnergy Solar Team, you can read in Sinne means in Frisian 'sun' and with some imagination you can still read something of 'energy'. The name originated from the word synergy. Synergy emphasizes the positive side of the collaboration: by joining forces, more can be achieved than in individual work. According to the formula 1 + 1 = 3. The word synergy comes from the Greek word 'synergia', which means 'cooperation'. All together, the name Sinnergy Solar Team is created.

A09 - Avans Solar Mariteam - NL

The Avans Solar Mariteam launched her first boat in 2014 and competed that year in the DONG Energy Solar Challenge. Two years after her maiden voyage, the team decided to start with the design of a new solar boat. In this project Electronical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering students have been working closely together in the design and realization of the new Avans Solar boat supported by Pebble Green Systems.

Recently first operational tests have been successfully completed and a team of 7 students and some enthusiastic teachers is now working hard to finish the boat in time for the race in Groningen/Leeuwarden in the first week of July. Our main goal for this year is to compete and obtain operational experience with the boat, in preparation for great results in the next year.

A10 - AGH Solar Boat Team - PL

The idea of ​​building a solar boat for the competition in Monaco has been circulating at the Faculty of Energy and Fuels for a long time. In the autumn of 2015, students belonging to the "Eco-Energy" circle together with the Academic Sailing Club started joint activities. They shared their dreams and one goal - participation in the international solar boat competition Monaco Solar Energy Boat Challenge. The various skills of the members helped to create the first team of the team, which in the coming months has grown considerably. The beginnings were not easy, we constantly encountered new obstacles, but we believed that what we do makes sense.
