STRANGE VEHICLES - WORLD'S LARGEST SOLAR POWERED CATAMARAN - THE "TURANOR"

MS turanor planetsolar’ is the world’s largest solar-powered boat

in 2012, ‘planetsolar‘, the fully solar-powered catamaran designed by New Zealander Craig Loomes, took a trip around the world energized exclusively by rays from the sun. this summer, the ship will continue its itinerary by taking part in a campaign to clean up European waters, a project initiated by the waste free oceans foundation that aims to significantly reduce the floating litter in European waters by 2020. starting in may, the boat became a scientific platform as part of the ‘planetsolar deepwater expedition. the project, led by professor and climatologist Martin Beniston from the university of Geneva will retrieve new data and measurements along the gulf stream. the journey will conclude in Reykjavik, repeating a transatlantic crossing in an attempt to break the ‘MS Tűranor planetsolar’s’ own 26-day speed record.

Engineers have effectively optimized the energy collection system and also the aerodynamics

removable parts allow the vessel to supply a total of 516 m2 flat photovoltaics positioned directly at the sun– sending power to 6 blocks of lithium-ion batteries. in addition, engineers have effectively optimized the energy collection system and also the aerodynamics, with the propulsion and light carbon framework providing a durable structure that will endure the long transatlantic route. equipped with an trawling filtering net/scoop, the boat also can collect up to 8 tons of marine pollution as it sails across the ocean. achieving average speeds of 5 knots ( 9.25 km/h), the 6 meter wide craft generates 127 horsepower (93.5 kW) from the plethora of installed solar panels– providing a maximum of 120kW.
