The HAN Solarboat is being built in IIME’s workshop in Doetinchem. There you’ll find all the tools necessary for developing prototypes.
The HAN Solarboat – Photon
The boat is 6m long and its width is 1.80m.
The boat weight, including pilot, is about 200kg.
About 27kg of those 200 is the entire hull!
To put this in contrast: the pilot’s weight is about 60 to 70kg and the solar pannels weight is 4 x 15kg (60kg)!
The pilot needs to wear a life jacket. The life jacket can be inflated by manually pulling a wire.
The pilot needs to have a navigation license.
The solar panels generate 1000W in energy
The boat can achieve a speed of up to 30 km/h.
