TÉCNICO SOLAR BOAT
Técnico Solar Boat is a university project consisting of cross-degree engineering students at Instituto Superior Técnico that work together on the development of a solar powered boat. Our main purpose is to participate in worldwide university competitions organized by Solar Sport One, such as Monaco Solar & Electric Boat Challenge.
Currently we are a unique project because we are the first group in the Iberian Peninsula to have a completed prototype. This led us to excellent results on our first competition in Monaco Solar & Electric Boat Challenge 2017.
Our boat named SR 01 (São Rafael 01), is a trimaran with an overall length of 5,2 m and a beam of 2,4 m made from carbon fiber, able to reach speeds of over 30 km/h with an available solar power of 1 kW.
