Solar Boat Twente
Join us in bringing the first Twente Solar Boat to the starting line of the Solar & Electric Boat Challenge in Monaco. For transporting the Conrad Solar Boat Twente from Enschede to Monaco, we need a trailer. Any donation will help us finance the trailer and realize our dream. Of course, we will thank you in a suitable way!
Solar energy is the future and with the Conrad Solar Boat Twente, we contribute to a more sustainable world. As a team of 15 students with various backgrounds, we build a boat powered only by solar energy in a full time year.
Together with our partners, we implement new technologies in our boat that will compete in the Monaco Solar & Electric Boat Challenge: the world championship for solar boats. From July 13th until July 15th, we will participate in three races: one-on-one speed duels, slalom and endurance. Our ambition is to take home a podium position by turning innovative technology into speed and agility.
Besides taking part in the Monaco race, the Twente solar boat will also participate during the Eneco Solar Boat Race 2017 on May 26th and 27th in Akkrum, the Dutch National Championship. This well-attended event with a casual atmosphere allows the visitors to watch the race and solar boats closely.
