T01 - Solar Boat Twente - NL

Solar Boat Twente encourages environmental awareness by the application of renewable energy in the maritime sector. The coming year a multidisciplinary team of dedicated and enthusiastic students will focus on building a reliable solar boat. By pushing the limits of technological innovation, the team embraces a great challenge: designing and building the motorboat of tomorrow. The goal is to race for a podium position in the Solar Sport One competition in 2019. Follow us on our road to Monaco!

T02 - Sunderbird Solarboat Team Emden - DE

We are the Solarboot Team Emden from the University of Applied sciences in Emden, Germany. We’re participating with our boat „Sunderbird“ (according to the style of the car Ford Thunderbird) in the Top class. Our boat looks a bit different to the other solar boats. We have a thin semi-planing hull and our solar panels are mounted on decks out of Carbon fiber with an aramid core sandwich structure. All in all our boat only weights 170 kg. With our propulsion system we’re reaching a top speed of 31 km/h. The driversteers with his feet so he has his hands free to pull the throttle or drinking a cold beer throughout the endurance race 😉

We’re looking forward to the great event!

T05 - Dutch Solar Boat Team - NL

Early in 2013, the foundation Dutch Solar Boat was realised. This foundation has developed a racing boat, powered entirely by solar energy! Our boats are used during various Solar Boat races in Europe. In 2018 we will compete in the Solar Sport One championship. Alongside the races, Dutch Solar Boat designs en constructs electronic drive-trains for several boats and develops highly efficient lightweight solar panels. If you need more information, please contact us!

T10 - SDOG - NL

The SDOG foundation was set up in 2013 to launch prestigious projects. After 6 years we still focus on the solarboat because there is a lot going on there and see that there is still much to be gained. This project is 99% in-house developed, designed, manufactured and built. Our racing boat "Phantom", which is inspired by Batman has incorporated many techniques that contribute to energy-efficient transport. Do you want to know what this is and how it works, ask one of the two team members.
