The semi-flexible solar panels have arrived! 32 pieces in total will cover the roof of Surya Namaskar and provide nearly 5 kW peak power allowing her to cruise at a constant speed of 5 knots (+/- 10 km/h) constantly between 08:00 till 17:00. At dawn and dusk and even at night, the battery pack will provide the electrical power with a range of 20 nautical miles (+/- 38 km)!

The future of clean marine propulsion is en route and is unstoppable! Byebye little gas outboard engine (in the background) and thank you for the good services. You’ve been amazing over decades but your time has come to an end…
