V02 - New Nexus Solar Racing Team - NL

In 2015 the company New Nexus formed an innovation group where the focus was primarily on gaining and sharing knowledge and experience instead of achieving a goal.

  • Bird of Prey was a part of this innovation group.
  • Bird of Prey is a V20 class boat designed by Vripack.
  • It was built by the team in 2016  during the weekends and the evening hours.
  • Our boat is equipped with 26 panels and numerous sensors.
  • It has been thoroughly updated in 2017 and  2019 as per the new rules and regulations.
  • The software  is a continuous process of innovation
  • The data is further converted into information and trends, which is then processed on a dashboard.
  • This provides important tactical information to our Solar Racing Team.
Which has resulted in the fact that since 2016 we have won several prizes and awards.

V03 - DB-20 Racing Team - NL

As a team, we try to do as much as possible by ourselves. Last season we invested in a new powertrain which has helped us become the world champion in the V20 class! This season we got new MPPT's and were focussing on optimizing our boat. Later this season we'll design our own new drivetrain which has a contra-rotating propeller, new T-shaped foils, and improvements in our data logging! Of course we are going to do many more beautiful developments this season, so keep an eye on our Facebook page!
