WINDELO CATAMARAN WITH TRANSFLUID ELECTRIC PROPULSION
WINDELO choose TRANSFLUID for their electric catamarans
Windelo is an innovative French shipyard that built his first electric catamaran. Windelo Catamarans, based in Canet-en-Roussillon, Occitanie, builds ecological, efficient, innovative and comfortable catamarans. After several years of research into ecological materials with the Mines d’Alès, they have built a yacht that is respectful of people and the environment thanks to an eco-responsible composite, made of basalt fiber and PET foam (from recycled plastic bottles) that reduce by 47% compared to a more traditional construction, and thanks to the knowledge and technology proposed by Transfluid regarding electric propulsion.
These eco-catamarans are equipped with two Bellmarine DriveMaster 20W EVO, a 48V electric propulsion systems, with a power of 20 kW each. Transfluid supplies the engines, the battery pack and all the components necessary for electric navigation. The battery pack, a LiFePO4@48V, allows up to 4 hours of navigation with zero emissions and it’s mainly powered by sustainable energies: solar, hydrogeneration and wind, all this thanks to the components supplied by Transfluid, guarantee of quality, efficiency and safety.
The integration of these innovations allows navigation with greater respect for the environment. The Ecology is at the heart of the Windelo and Transfluid project.
