EPROPULSION
AND SAILGP

ePropulsion Has Forged an Official Partnership with SailGP to Deliver Actions and Innovation that Advance the Global Adoption of Clean Energy

With a shared sustainability and environmental purpose and vision, ePropulsion provides electric outboards and related solar charging for the global sail racing league that champions a world powered by nature.

Who Is SailGP

SailGP is adrenaline-fuelled global sailing competition where teams compete using high performance F50 foiling catamarans. Powered by Nature™, SailGP is the first climate positive sports and entertainment property with the goal of accelerating the transition to clean energy.

Our Shared Mission for More Sustainability

ePropulsion is continuously working in partnership with SailGP to provide electric outboard motors for the league’s event support tenders from Season 2. Both ePropulsion Spirit and Navy motors were selected to power SailGP Inspire support boat, SailGP’s community, education and outreach initiative.
During Season2, ePropulsion supported SailGP to establish a comprehensive fleet monitoring program. The continuous partnership helped SailGP reduce its support boat fleet emissions by 10% per average event.
ePropulsion and SailGP will continue to work together to help revolutionize the sports and entertainment industry focusing on an acceleration towards clean energy.

Forging the Future Together for a Better Planet

Sail GP’s cutting edge autonomous race marks were powered by ePropulsion Navy 6.0 Evo. These race markers are fully electrically powered and operated via GPS, which means there is no need to anchor each mark to the sea bed, avoiding damage to the local environment.

Speaking about the project, on water operations transition manager Tom Verity said: “ SailGP Technologies alongside ePropulsion and MarksetBot have been developing an autonomous race mark for use in the championship. These are fully electric-powered sustainable propulsion and they’re also fully agile on the racecourse. So we GPS lock them, there’s no need for anchoring, they are made out of sustainable materials. So a lot more sustainable overall in their operation. ”

The ePropulsion outboard motors were very easy to use, reactive and with excellent handling. The charging made life easier and the fact that there is no sound or odours has a positive effect on the marine environment.
