Who we are
Técnico Solar Boat is an university project consisting of cross-degree engineering students at Instituto Superior Técnico that work together on the development of a solar powered boat. Its main purpose is to participate in worldwide engineering competitions organized by Solar Sport One and Yatch Club de Monaco.
We are currently an unique project in the Iberian Peninsula, already counting on two prototypes built (SR01 and SR02) with which we participated in three years of international competitions. In July 2019 we earned the 2nd place of the Solar A class at the Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge.
The next big objective set by our team is to develop and construct a new hydrogen-powered competition vessel.
As a team, our main goal is to learn, improve and innovate as much as possible for these competitions and at the same time promote renewable energies, sustainability, and electric mobility. This is also why Técnico Solar Boat is completely open source.
Reponsible for the energy management, hydrofoils control system, dual motor system, telemetry and database.
They carry the design and production of the hydro-foils struts, transmission sytem, propulsion column and trailer
Hull Design and Composites
Those who make sure our boat floats! They design and produce every composite made piece.
Management and Marketing
Making a competitive boat comes with it's costs. We try to balance efficiency and cost with a low budget.
