EKO signed up to sponsor the Solar boat team from the University of Antwerp with a MS-80. The ISO 9060: class A pyranometer with fast response and spectrally flat offered is the perfect solution for the team to monitor the performance of the Solar boat.
The Solar boat built by the team from the university is completely self-powered by the pv panels that cover the entire surface of the boat. It has already participated to races since 2015 and the team plans to participate to 2 other races this year. Those will be the Eco Race Challenge and the Solar & Energy Boat Challenge.
Many challenges await the solar boat team in 2019. The team has the goal to upgrade their boat to the next level and ensure that it can go to a speed of 30km per hours.
We wish the Solar boat team to beat their own record and to excel in the next races!
