Having realized the potential of solar boats for cruise purpose, it was only natural to extend the same to ferries and other vessels that needs much higher endurance and performance. To buttress our capability we have tied up with a leading solar ferry builder from Europe and have launched the various models outlined below.
A large proportion of electric power used for the boats is stored in huge battery bank, making it solar powered electric boats. In rainy or cloudy days, even if the sun do not provide any power, the battery bank, previously charged overnight can run the boat whole day. In addition a backup electric generator driven by petrol is optionally provided.
