Jachthaven Biesbosch is delighted to support the TU Delft Hydro Motion Team on their mission!

The TU Delft Hydro Motion Team comprises 23 students hailing from nine diverse study courses at TU Delft (The Delft University of Technology).

With a shared goal, this student team dedicates itself to designing, constructing, and racing a remarkable hydrogen-powered boat within a single year. Their mission extends beyond the boundaries of conventional sustainability, aiming to highlight the maritime industry's potential in tackling present and future climate challenges. Each year, students leverage the expertise of industry professionals and draw on the experience of alumni, to explore innovative and sustainable developments. This year, by incorporating cutting-edge technologies, they strive to bridge the gap between future technology and the current standard.

In the year 2023, the TU Delft Hydro Motion Team is aiming to secure the world championship title in Monaco — an ambitious objective that further highlights their commitment to succeed.

Testing on the water

Testing is now underway for the hydrogen boat as the team prepares for the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge. The boat undergoes rigorous testing at the designated marina in Drimmelen, Jachthaven Biesbosch, where a berth has been generously provided by the marina. These tests will continue until 30th June. Subsequently, the team will participate in the Open Sea Class event scheduled from 5 – 8th July. During this competition, the TU Delft Hydro Motion Team seeks to achieve world champion status by excelling in three categories: endurance, speed, and manoeuvrability.

“Thank you to Jachthaven Biesbosch for our berth in the marina.”

“Last week we went to our test location for the first time! We test in the harbour in Drimmelen. The harbour gives the perfect opportunity to get the boat in the water for testing and get the boat out of the water to make the necessary improvements."
