DEOdrive – Fuel cell sailing boat

This boat features an Electric motor, lithium battery pack and a fuel cell on hydrogen for all its power requirements. This makes the boat unique as a fully sustainable boat being an example for all small boats that regularly use old and very polluting engines for all their power requirements.
The sailing boat features an Electric motor, lithium battery pack and a fuel cell on hydrogen for all its power requirements. This makes the boat unique as a fully sustainable boat being an example for all small boats that regularly use old and very polluting engines for all their power requirements. Note that their engines are usually also used as a generator, not only to propel the boat. Sailing boats use these engines also to enter and leave the harbor. We will show a running electric engine in a small water basin on the festival. We also demonstrate bike gear with which visitors can generate electricity. Come check out how they power up engines underwater with electricity. One day we will see all the boats powered on hydrogen and batteries…

On the festival, DEOdrive will showcase how fuel cell engines can operate under water.
