UAntwerp Solar Boat Team

UAntwerp Solar Boat Team is a team of passionate engineering students at the faculty of Applied Engineering Sciences at the University of Antwerp. Since the start in 2007, the team does research on sustainable energy in combination with transport on the water and builds a boat powered by solar energy every year. This year’s boat has been specifically designed for hydrofoils, comparable with an airplane wing, that will lift the boat out of the water at a high enough speed to go even faster. We want to contribute to the movement that makes people aware of alternative options for energy supply. Creating publicity around our project is the way to go.
