Electric pod successfully docked with mother ship...

2018/02/26

...not in a galaxy far away, but well at the ship yard in Lidköping, Sweden. The electric drive is being installed and getting ready to push a 3.3 ton and 34 foot Smaragd through the water without any carbon dioxide left behind.

 

Niclas and Göran just attached the first Torqeedo Pod Drive in the country. Let's call it a small step for two experienced boat builders...and part of the giant leap mankind is taking towards a fossil fuel-free life on planet Earth.

 

 The new engine in... (yes, that's all there is)

 

 ...the old engine out.

 

The Smaragd hull has a steep angle and therefore the bed for the pod was to be integrated in a "negative" design.

 

 

 Two of these Lithium babies will run the show.
