It is different from anything that has happened in the field of mobility to date. This solar catamaran uses the very latest cutting-edge technology available on the market. The intention is to demonstrate that high-performance solar mobility can be realized today by making innovative use of existing materials and technology. A Supersized Solar-Powered Catamaran, The Turanor PlanetSolar Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us A Supersized Solar-Powered Catamaran, The Turanor PlanetSolar Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us The ideal shape and size of the boat for the chosen route was determined by in-depth research. The PlanetSolar engineers have to factor in a host of parameters – propulsion, solar panel design, energy storage, materials and the external environment. A Supersized Solar-Powered Catamaran, The Turanor PlanetSolar Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us A whole range of studies will need to be conducted in areas such as the boat’s hydro and aerodynamics, the materials used, the management and storage of energy and, finally, the power plant and optimal routing. It is a concentration of futuristic technology. * The name TÛRANOR is derived from the “Lord of the Rings” saga by J.R.R. Tolkien and translates as “the power of the sun” and "victory". Technology A Supersized Solar-Powered Catamaran, The Turanor PlanetSolar Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us A Supersized Solar-Powered Catamaran, The Turanor PlanetSolar Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us PlanetSolar is a catamaran that runs solely on the energy found in light. Additional removable parts allow it to expose a total of 537 m2 of photovoltaic modules (solar panels) to the sun. This impressive data makes it the biggest solar-powered ship in the world. Legnth: 31 m Width: 15 m Length with flaps: 35 m Width with flaps: 23 m Height: 6.1 m Draft: 1.55 m Weight: 95 t Surface area of solar modules: 537 m2 PV panel efficiency: 18.8% Installed PV power: 93.5 kW (127.0 hp) Average engine consumption: 20 kW (26.8 hp) Crew: 6 people Number of people that can go on board: 40 Autonomy: never-ending solar navigation A Supersized Solar-Powered Catamaran, The Turanor PlanetSolar Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us Information and images courtesy of PlanetSolar
