In recent years, we have seen how land vehicles have been incorporating electric motors into their designs. Sometimes the result has been a hybrid vehicle whereas in other cases fully electric vehicles have been placed in the market. Although it is still difficult to compete with fossil fuels, mainly in terms of autonomy, it is a fact that electric vehicles belong to a developing sector. Now it is time for marine environment.
It is really important to respect the natural environment in which we live, both in and out of the water. For this reason, we must develop aquatic propulsion systems that guarantee zero-emissions, replacing efficiently current systems.
Designing for aquatic environments is very tough. The difficulties that have to be faced during design development are completely different to the ones that appear in a land vehicle development and they require specific solutions to be 100% electric. That´s why Bizintek Innova has initiated a line of development focused on propulsion systems, power electronics and control electronics in marine environments. In Aquila Boards, spin-off of Bizintek Innova, we have brought to reality a practical application of this technology, providing our boards with a completely electric unit. It is one of the most demanding applications we have found for this technology.
