Electric pod successfully docked with mother ship...
...not in a galaxy far away, but well at the shipyard 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 into a "negative" design.
Two of these Lithium babies will run the show.
