Fischer Panda 48 V electric drive on solar catamaran

The solar powered catamaran is equipped with 2 x 10 kW electric motors from Fischer Panda.

The catamaran has a 56 m2 upper deck made of solar modules, which supplies power to two electric shaft motors with 10 kW each. Excess energy is stored in batteries with a capacity of 60 kWh, which can be used to operate the motors and the electrical equipment on board at night or when it is overcast.

The maximum speed of the catamaran is 10 knots (nearly 20 km/h).
