A multifunctional carbon solar roof for a 45" catamaran

Updated: May 3

We finished the catamaran roof ... 6,34m x 4,54m full carbon. Up to 4,8 KW solar power possible. Integrated traveller. And a lot more. Will be mounted on a 45" Fontaine Pajot Bahia Catamaran. Designed in Rhino 3D. Foam cores milled by a Kuka Robot. Produced in Carbon Epoxy. Production time: only 44 days

The roof will be fitted with LG NeON 2 BiFacial solar cells. They are designed to absorb sunlight both from the front and the rear sides of its NeON® cell by using a transparent backsheet. The dual faces of the cell result in higher energy generation. All cables are hidden in the structure and can easily maintained through inspection hatches from the cockpit.
