Building the fastest sailing vessel this summer AND scaling it up for emission-free offshore transportation

Peter Steinkogler, national and state champion in various boat classes, designed a revolutionary sailboat concept, not only to break records, but also to transport goods efficiently, economically and without producing emissions.
IMAT and other institutes at TU Graz are partnering in the development of the V-REX and will provide their specialized knowledge in the fields of avionics, sensor technology, materials science and fluid mechanics.

At IMAT, bachelor theses for the finite element simulation of the hydrofoils as well as the production of the boat models used for tests has been carried out, which is now being put into action and can be actively funded via Kickstarter.
