We’re delighted to announce that the yacht we’ll be using for demonstrations during the METS show in November is now safely docked in Amsterdam’s City Marina.
Triskel’s Managing Director, Ken Wittamore, has been using his Hallberg Rassy 42, Armorel, as a test boat since the early days of Integrel’s development. Having completed the trip from Cornwall to Amsterdam in three and a half days (a total distance of 450 miles) Amorel is now in place and ready to demonstrate the fully-developed Integrel system during the METS show.
Ken said: “It was a pretty typical Northern waters run with some pretty foul weather in the Channel to begin with and then a very busy run up the North Sea to IJmuiden and the North Sea Canal.
“Whether it is managing heavy seas, negotiating the dense traffic in the Channel or manoeuvring in and out of the sea locks, the last thing you want to be worried about is your generator; handling the boat is hard enough.
“During the whole of this trip we didn’t touch it; the system just faded into the background, generating all the electrical power that the boat needed without the slightest intervention. To be honest, I forgot that it was there until we arrived in Amsterdam and I finally got round to checking the batteries. We had 20kWh of power tucked away in the main storage batteries and the 12 volt banks were both at 100%.”
If you would like to book in for an onboard demonstration then transport between METS and the marina will be laid on free-of-charge by Triskel. Pay a visit to our stand at METS in Hall 7, Stand 033e, where you’ll have the chance to chat to our experienced engineers and book a visit to the boat, or alternatively contact us directly to reserve your slot today.
