ACCIONA EcoPowered

A sailboat zero emissions

At ACCIONA we created a "zero emissions boat" powered by 100% renewable energy, able to compete this November 2012 in the Vendée Globe 2012, the toughest race on the planet. A solo round the world non-stop. Conceived as a sustainable boat from the first piece, the boat ACCIONA is as competitive as their opponents, but if the need to use any fossil fuel. After two years working in R & D + i through the work of a multidisciplinary team of 70 people, we have succeeded in designing, on the one hand, teams that ensure the supply of energy from the resources of sun, wind and water, and secondly, maximize hydrodynamic sailboat designs and materials of new generation.

This is the first scientific expedition in which the efficacy of a zero emissions vehicle, powered only with the power of the wind with the help of kites over 80 m2.

The ACCIONA Windpowered Antarctica, as well as being a mobile laboratory, constitutes an ideal solution for the supply and transportation of various scientific basis of the polar regions. Thus, ACCIONA takes a step further in their concern for energy efficiency, returning to be pioneers in the search for solutions based exclusively on renewable energies.
