Innovative Solar Powered Catamaran Ferry

Teignbridge has been collaborating on an exciting new project, the construction of an innovative Solar Powered Catamaran Ferry. The aim of the designers is is to end the reliance of ocean-going vessels on fossil fuels through the utilisation of modern technology and advanced hydrodynamics. The “Solar Eclipse” is 13.25m LOA, achieves 9 to 10 knots and has 3 double guest cabins, plus 2 crew cabins. At 4 knots her range is unlimited. 56 sqm of solar panels drive 2 x 10kW electric motors. Propulsion is provided by a pair of Teignbridge specially designed 360mm x 300mm x 5 Blade Hi-Skew propellers. The designer and builder of this technologically advanced vessel commented on the uniquely designed Teignbridge propellers: “ Your Propellers are a perfect match for our motors and vessel, well done to your design team” “Could hardly be a better match”
