In St. Petersburg, the presentation of the first Russian ekokatamarana

The unique catamaran, an electric motor and a solar-powered, It was presented at the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island 11 May. Already 19 May the ship will go to large-scale expedition "Ekovolna" from the Baltic to the Caspian Sea. Ecological ship was designed and created by Russian engineers in the framework of the project "Engineering contests and competitions", "National Center for Engineering contests and competitions". The project is included in the road map Marinette National Technology Initiative

In 25-27 May 2018 will be held in Veliky Novgorod “Solar Regatta” and “School Solar Regatta”.

A key event in 2018 year will be the Expedition “SAINT-PETERSBURG – MOSCOW – Astrakhan 2018″ on the rivers Oka and Volga catamaran, moving by solar energy. This unique event Renewable Energy organizes and conducts ANO "National Center for Engineering contests and competitions".

Russia's first solar-powered catamaran 19 May go on an expedition

The unique development of Russian engineers – catamaran, an electric motor and a solar-powered, go on an expedition on the rivers of Russia from the Baltic to the Caspian Sea.

A similar event will take place for the first time in Russia's recent history, and it is symbolic. In 1703 by decree of Peter the Great began construction Vyshnevolotskaya water system - the main navigable river artery, which connected the basins of the Volga and the Baltic Sea. Peter believed, that its creation will expand the opportunities for the Russian Empire in the transport and trade and economic areas.

Today, 315 years later, innovative solar catamaran will take place on this historic journey from St. Petersburg to Astrakhan, combining the ideas of the great sovereign, the aspirations for the development of high technology and respect for the natural heritage of the country. The unique ship of the XXI century will bring together into a coherent whole dozens of cities, millions of people and three hundred years of our common history of technological development. Expedition "Ekovolna" builds bridges between the past, present and future, opening up tremendous opportunities for future generations.

The expedition takes place in the framework of the project "Engineering contests and competitions" road map Marinette National Technology Initiative. start will be held 19 May Saint-Petersburg. For three months the ship will pass over 5000 kilometers through 20 Russian regions with stops in 40 cities. In 14 cities along the route of the expedition will be held scientific and technical festivals "Ekovolna".

On board four cabins, for eight people. "For the first time in Russia, this route will take a catamaran on solar energy and electric motors. Expedition "Ekovolna" will be the world's longest river expedition Solar, and we plan to apply to the Guinness Book of Records ", - the director of "National Center of engineering competitions and contests", President of the organizing committee of the international competition "Solar regatta" Eugene Casanova.

As part of the expedition, in partnership with the geographical faculty of the Moscow State University named after MV. University studies will be conducted of the aquatic ecosystem. Thanks to, that the ship is running on solar batteries, scientists will be able to collect clean water samples, not distorted "fuel track" courts, equipped with internal combustion engines. According to the results of samples it is planned to build an ecological map of the rivers, which runs the route of the catamaran.

The project organizers say, that in case of successful completion of the expedition soon eco-friendly ships, built on the technology used in catamaran, can appear in the country's major cities. "In September, by the end of the expedition, we plan to launch a pilot project on river trams 30 places. They will be based on a catamaran with solar batteries. Launch pad will be in Moscow and St. Petersburg ", - said Eugene Kazanov.

Development of inland waterway retains its potential for socio-economic development of the country and inter-regional relations. Efficient use of water resources at the current level of technology is a challenge for the young generation of engineers.


The event is held under the Project "Engineering contests and competitions" road map Marinette STI.
