The Watt&Sea RACING Hydrogenerator is the patented and industrialized version of the prototypes developed for the round the world race Vendée Globe 2008. This model is particularly adapted to performing racing yachts.
Total autonomy for racing yachts
The Watt&Sea Race Hydrogenerators are manufactured in Carbon fibre and designed for extreme conditions (over 30knots) with an effective speeed range from 7 to 25 knots.
The Race Hydrogenerator is equipped with a variable pitch propeller which is controlled by of way of miniaturized processor and hydraulic pump.
The assembly is mounted on the transom with operation similer to that of a lifting rudder. - Drag is minimized and the energy output optimized.
