We are a team of 10 students from ENSTA Paris and 2 teachers. We are concerned about societal issues and are motivated to take part in the Energy Boat Challenge again to share our innovations with teams from all over the world. Last year, we succeed to pass tests and technical inspection in Monaco but a broken actuator prevented us from participating in the races. This year, we will be more ready and more experienced.
The principal objective of the team is to demonstrate that it is possible to build a competitive boat with a low budget and respect the environment at the same time.
Ecole Supérieur d’Ingénieur Léonard de Vinci (ESILV)
The team consists of 12 members including 2 project managers, one bringing his technical expertise and the other ensuring the tasks’ definition and follow-up. There are 5 sub-teams, each focusing on a specific area. We work in collective intelligence: every work is submitted to the criticism of everyone, and major decisions are taken by majority.
Our objective is to show which devices allow us to navigate while being energy efficient. We also want to highlight French innovations at the event (our battery is french, so are our solar pannels). Our personal goals are focused on achieving better rankings than last year.
Università fi Bologna
The aim of our project is providing students and researchers with the possibility to apply their knowledge in the development of sustainable mobility solutions. From our design we want to obtain the highest performance and reliability possible, in such a way to demonstrate the competitivity and convenience which sustainable solutions can offer.
Universit of Rijeka
We are a group of enthusiasts and lovers of boats, composite materials and sailing. We are engaged in the design and construction of vessels, education and networking. This is our third participation in MEBC. Our team previously competed in the HYDROCONTEST competition
The Via Kornel team was involved in the development and detailed 3D modeling of the boat’s hull, as well as optimizing the 3D model for manufacturing using CNC milling technology.
SBM Offshore (Organization)
Our E-Racing Team is composed of young and senior engineers (about 10), of different specialties and from different locations worldwide, working all together to promote offshore new technologies and the use of renewable energies.
After winning Innovation [x2] and eco-conception prices, we aim to win the races and finish at the 1st place of the championship. Last year (2021) we ended at the second place. We will focus our development to reach higher speed and more reliability.
Physis_PEB is a team of 90 students. Our members come from different faculties of the polytechnic of Milan, for example: mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering, management engineering and many more… We are divided into several departments, each of which has its own area of influence. The administrative part is managed by a team leader, a technical director and an executive director and our pilot is a professional driver who won the GT30 2022 Italian Championship.
This year we want to be the absolute protagonists in innovation in the nautical sector. As a team of the Politecnico di Milano we have an obligation to best represent our reputation in the field of research and innovation at a national level. For this reason, we are carrying out a real revolution in the field of hydrogen propulsion as well as in the marine sector we must also thanks our partners.
National Technical University of Athens
Our goals for this year are to surpass last year’s performance, both in technical terms, but also within our team. We are focusing on gaining and applying knowledge in CAE programs to simulate results, but also passing this knowledge on to newer members, and in general strengthening the team’s social aspect.
Università degli Studi di Messina (UNIME)
Our goal is to become driver of innovation, rising the flag of sustainability and promoting the passion and respect for the sea, starting from Messina. The participation to MEBC is also aimed at giving each member the opportunity to follow a growth path towards future challenges and evolve multidisciplinary skills.
Technische Universitat Berlin
Our Project is offered as a credit point based module at the TU Berlin. Students can participate one semester and earn points for their studies. If a student wants to stay longer he is asked to join the extra curricular part of the WannSea Team. If everything goes as planned, WannSea will be able to set sail in the MEBC 2023. But winning is not the end goal. We want to drive true innovation which can then perhaps be used in shipbuilding. The long-term goal is to establish WannSea as a permanent technical student project at TU Berlin alongside others (like Formula Student Team, etc.).
Rochester Institute of Technology of Dubai
The Sailing Tigers is a team of eight senior students composed from Mechanical, electrical, and industrial engineers. A secondary team in the form of a club provides help in the telemetry and propeller systems, this secondary team is composed of third year student and previous year’s team that went to Monaco.
Our goals for this project and competition are, but not limited to, ranking in the first place in the Energy Class, recording the highest speed in our class, and pushing innovation and expanding our horizons on marine renewable energy applications.
Kumaraguru College of Technology
Team Sea Sakthi is a brigade of 15 desirous scholars pursuing our undergraduate bachelor’s degrees in various domains from Kumaraguru College of Technology. We, a batch of prehensile students wish to mark a sensational revolution in the marine sector of India keeping our scope of focus on sustainability& clean energy.
The objective of Sea Sakthi is to further the progress of renewable technology in the marine sector by involving ourselves in iterative and innovative design, developing comprehensive industrial partnerships, exhaustive research, and detail testing. We view the challenge as an opportunity to measure our ideas against the world. The challenge, in our perspective, will be an important learning and experiential milestone.
Instituto Superior Técnico
Técnico Solar Boat is a portugese university project, established by a group of students of the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon from different engineering fields. The team is composed by 71 members focused on the development of both competing boats (one in the energy class and another in the solar class).
The great objetive of TSB relies on a more pratical and closer to reality education. The team prioritizes the internally made components to the comercial ones, leading to a higher knowledge acquired by its members and being one step closer to becoming a world changing engineer.
University of Genova
The team is composed of MS Students and PhD Students in Electrical and Naval Engineering supported by a research multidisciplinary teams of researchers and Professors of naval and electrical engineering. The overall number at this first application is composed of nearly 7-8 Students. The supported team composed of different young researchers and Professor is also reported.
The main objective is to create a multidisciplinary collaboration in our core research field between your researchers and student of our Department. The long term is to have a knowledge transfer of the research and teaching to students and provide strong and positive collaboration of the group.
