Sunreef Yachts reveal first pictures of eco solar power system

by Sunreef Yachts 30 Apr 2021 08:05 PDT

The Sunreef Yachts Eco R&D Team reveals the pictures of the company's in-house developed solar power system. Using ultra-thin, shock resistant and highly-efficient solar cells, it is the industry's first composite-integrated photovoltaic technology.

The shipyard's solar power system is currently being integrated on both power and sail catamarans within the Sunreef Yachts Eco range of luxury catamarans. The panels are entirely flush with all curved composite structures including masts, hull sides and biminis. With maximized solar power, the Sunreef Yachts Eco deliver the industry's top solar power efficiency.

"We reinvented solar panels for yachts. Our team has challenged the status quo in marine photovoltaic technology, making solar panels an integral part of the Sunreef Yachts Eco design. This is something unique in the whole yachting world.": Francis Lapp - Sunreef Yachts Founder and President.

Weighing less than 1,8 kg/m", the system is the lightest marine photovoltaic solution and uses cells delivering a peak performance of 24%. In addition, the integration technique gives the panels an extremely high resistance to shock and abrasion.
