Excellent partners Asseaboat The Company was established in 2010 in Bologna following the commitment of an interdisciplinary working group of engineers, sailors and architects. The group’s goal was to identify innovative and aesthetically sound systems to bring solar energy on board the pleasure yachts. The partnership with Solbian was immediate and the solutions proposed with the brand Asseaboat focused exclusively on solar systems developed around the flexible photovoltaic modules. Light and curved steel structures to support semi-rigid photovoltaic modules and custom-cut deck installations are currently the strengths alongside the consulting activity and the distribution of products and accessories for the nautical sector. Solbian In the photovoltaic sector since 2007, Solbian is now an established entity in the manufacturing of flexible solar panels.Born from the encounter between the most important Italian sailor, Giovanni Soldini, and an affirmed physicist, Marco Bianucci, the Turin-based company represents their will to bring solar energy on racing yachts. From the start, Solbian has always invested in technological development: innovation, efficiency, lightness have become with time the core features of Solbian products. AE group Transportation over water, will it have a future? How to achieve optimum speed versus power? Can a boat solely be powered by solar panels? Advanced Electromagnetics develops an ultra-high performance electric motor, which is housed in an aluminium pod. Together with Solar Boat Twente we are trying to create an ultimate reliable pod motor that will be used to power, but also to "hover" the boat above the water at elevated speeds. Interested in the expertise of AE and curious about what we could accomplish for you? Contact us for more information.
