Abstract [en]

Through extensive research it has shown that today’s sail boat owners are very frustrated concerning the limited choice of engine alternatives offered by today’s market. Besides rising fuel-costs, environmental awareness is very important in today’s society. Hence it is vital to find alternative environmental-friendly motors and replace combustion-engines.

 

Zilent Ocean is an extensive project within Development engineering program at Halmstad University. The Project aims at minimizing environmental impact on our seas through limiting the usage of combustion-engines in sail boats. Zilent Ocean’s major target is the development of a customer-oriented company offering electric conversion kits of combustion-engines to sail boats at very competitive market prices.

 

The Project was carried out by converting the combustion-engine in a MAXI 77 sailing boat (7.7m length, 5 beds). The current diesel-engine installed in the boat was replaced with a new DC electrical engine together with the appropriate controller unit.

 

The finished sail boat prototype will be evaluated under the summer of 2009. The sail boat contains unique solutions enabling a more cost-efficient system in comparison with today’s combustion-engines. The aim is to provide a complete electric conversion kit at a lower price than a new combustion-engine. Together with lower investment costs, minimal maintenance and running costs, electrical conversion from Zilent Ocean is bound to be the future, and the natural decision for many sailors in Scandinavia.
