Solbian solar panels for Outcut 29.5: the latest generation towable catamaran

05/18/2017

Introduced at the ElectroSea in Santa Margherita Ligure, Outcut 29.5 is a project that successfully combines independence and innovation. Concepts that Solbian has always promoted and pursue through its products and photovoltaic technologies. For these reasons the Turin based company has contributed with a 408 W plant to this next generation catamaran.

Outcut 29.5 is a towable catamaran with variable width, it’s in fact equipped with a special system (DHR) that reduces the distance between the hulls in the water from 3.5 to 2.5 meters in just 90 seconds. The 2x20 Hp drive system does not require a nautical license, there are no registration requirements and being towable, it’s also free from all port duties and obligations. With a limited draught (just 30 centimeters) and a weight of just 1,400 kilograms Outcut can be equipped with a combustion or electric engine.

For this project Solbian identified in the SP series the perfect choice in terms of power, resistance and aesthetics. Three flexible solar panels SP 100 and two SP 50 cover the roof of the catamaran while another SP 50 is installed on the front of the cabin.

Solbian SP Series is at the top of the range, thanks to the use of selected SunPower™ monocrystalline silicon cells that reach a record 23% conversion of sunlight into electricity. High performances that don’t go to the detriment of a pleasant appearance: thanks to the cells back-contact technology the electrical contacts are hidden on the rear of the panel giving an elegant look to the installation.
