Sicomin sponsored the Nobiskrug Solar Team at the 6th Solar and Energy Boat Challenge that took place in Monaco last week. Nobiskrug, the German renowned superyacht shipyard, made its debut in this unique race, achieving a bronze medal in the overall ranking of the ‘Yacht Club de Monaco 2019 Energy Class’.
Organised since 2014 by the Yacht Club de Monaco, in collaboration with the International Powerboating Federation and Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Solar and Energy Boat Challenge is unique in the world. Young engineers work hand in hand with experienced manufacturers to design and develop alternative propulsion systems for yachts, using only renewable energy sources.

This year, 34 teams from 14 countries competed across three boat classes. The Nobiskrug Solar Team participated in the Energy Class with seven other teams. The aim of the Energy Class is to power the yachting of tomorrow by designing the most powerful and durable propulsion system using a clean energy source of choice. Built in-house, the 5m long Nobiskrug boat is equipped with solar panels and an electric engine. Sicomin’s SR GreenPoxy 33 and carbon fibre biaxial reinforcements were used for the complete structure of the boat.
