Who help us reach our goals
Together towards sustainability
With the help of our partners, we are able to reach our goals. These partners often help us with a financial contribution, support in products & services or an exchange of knowledge. Furthermore,through collaborating with the TU Delft Solar Boat Team our partners display that their company promotes sustainable developments and innovation. This way we show the world that we, together with our partners, work on and stand behind sustainable innovations.
Delft University of Technology is the home of the TU Delft Solar Boat Team. They facilitate a big hall, the D:DREAM Hall with workshops and office spaces where several student teams can put their engineering ideas into practice. In this way they offer lots of training and courses with the use of machines but also in the fields of running a team, like finance, acquisition and team leadership.

The sense of freedom, the rushing wind and water: experiencing the sea on a yacht moving in perfect harmony with nature is a passionate experience. Since 2007, the same passion has been driving Solbian to produce Solbianflex photovoltaic panels: innovative, flexible, light and highly efficient. They provide energy where it is needed, a natural and environmentally-friendly source. Giovanni Soldini was one of the first sailors to choose Solbianflex panels for his adventurous oceanic crossings, testing their quality and reliability in the harsh conditions on board. Solbianflex panels are particularly suited to sailing yachts, but they are equally suited to applications in electric mobility, caravans and campers, trekking, tents and mountain huts, emergency structures and building integrated projects.
