Since a year we get assistance from what is probably the world's leading expert on pleasure boat propulsion - Oddbjörn Hallenstvedt, the inventor behind both Volvo Pentas Duoprop and IPS. This in order to get the most efficient propulsion possible. Today, there was some serious knowledge transfer taking place when we finally have the gear guru Bertil onboard. Thank you Oddbjörn for sharing your enormous knowledge with all the kids at Candela! ... See MoreSee Less

Since we want to take the leading role in the global transformation to electric boats, we focus hard on finding ways to enable a scaled up mass production. One of the more difficult areas for man hour reduction are all the carbon parts. Cutting the fabric, putting it into the mould, preparing for vacuum and pulling resin through the fabric takes hundreds of hours per boat. Not very volumish. So how can for example the hull be produced using robots? After iterating some different approaches we ended up in cutting the hull mould in three parts - bottom and two sides. Then gravitation can keep the fabric in place and robots can be used to take out a large part of the manual work. After infusion, the three hull parts will be glued together using another robot. Today we finished the building of the bottom part. Pretty cool! #geniusolivieratwork ... See MoreSee Less

Stefan TörnblomDet är även min erfarenhet, det gäller verkligen att minimera antalet delar. Man kan även tjäna mycket på att redan på konstruktions stadiet tänka tillverkning, hur man ska passa divinycellen undvika remsningar etc. Man kan även spara tid vid monteringen genom att använda MMA limmer med korta härdtider typ tio till 20 minuter, detta möjliggör att man kan utföra fler moment per dag.
För en serieproduktion är jag övertygad om att egen tillverkad prepreg som skärs till med datorstyrd ultraljuds skärning är den effektivaste byggmetoden. Det är även den metod som ger den lättaste båten och som är den mest repeterbara tillverkningen.

I am happy to announce that Bertil Hagqvist today is joining Candela as Mechanical engineer. After a MSc from Luleå, Bertil has spent more than six years at Scania where he, among other things, has developed gears for trucks. At Candela Bertil will make sure the transmission gets über-efficient, the hydraulics super-fast and that all other moving parts get frictionless. Welcome to the team Bertil! ... See MoreSee Less

Karl Fägersten updated the description of the group Friends of Candela.

We are in the midst of creating something completely new. An all electric speed boat with a range of close to >2 hours in 25 knots. Add to that a top speed of 30 knots and an almost silent ride. And a hull that makes no slamming in 1 meter waves. Probably a revolution.

We achieve this by combining an unique solution for low water resistance with modern lightweight materials and the most advanced battery technology.

Development is ongoing. The first prototype is launched. Serial production is planned for Q4 2017. Follow this group for updates. ... See MoreSee Less

As the NYT puts it, there are two things that are more important than anything else in a time when we have the means to make the world fantastic or go under: Science and Diplomacy.

A few weeks ago I made a presentation for some 30 fund managers together representing more then half of Sweden's pension capital. One of them said: "I recently bought a hybrid Audi and the range on electricity turned out to be one third of what is in the spec. Candelas range also seems to be a fantasy so why should I trust you?" I didn't know what to answer so I said something stupid like "You don't have to trust me. There are plenty of gasoline alternatives to chose from". But the question has remained unanswered. A fantasy? It is clear that parts of the car industry has forgotten the intrinsical value of the truth which has eroded some trust. So let me get into the range topic. It will get detailed so if you know more fun stuff than induced drag and propeller efficiencies, you can stop reading here.

According to our dynamic model, our first prototype, P1, shall have power of 21kW (28hp) at 20 knots with 2 people onboard. The breakdown of that is shown in the chart. The largest chunk is hydrodynamic drag which is made up by a number of drag types: friction drag, induced drag (vortex at the wing tips), wave drag (when you are close to the surface), spray drag (accelerating water up in the air) interference drag (foils and struts disturbing each other) and bulb drag (we have 2 bulbs in the front and one for the bevel gear in the aft and they are all creating drag). We have challenged all these drag types quite a bit but there is still more to be done. For example, reducing the rudder thinckness from 50 to 35mm has a large impact and we will do it. Further reducing the weight means smaller wings and struts and all drag types are improved.

The aerodynamic drag at 13% is rather high. It is due to a cabriolet design with a drag coefficient around 0,7. A closed, car-like, cabin would half that. But we will stay open.

A propeller efficiency of some 72% is hard to beat with a single prop. The 6% loss in the electric drive train (motor plus inverter) can be compared with the 75% loss in a combustion engine. All heat and smoke.

Now our empirical data is not at 21kW but at 23kW. We are working on finding out why we have lost 10% somewhere.

The second prototype and the serial boats will be vastly improved in terms of efficiency compared to P1. The same dynamic model suggests a 30% reduction where a 200kg weight loss is one of the key drivers together with reduced air drag and improved rudder design. Assuming some reality-model deviation we end up with a 20knot power of 15 kW (20hp). Decent for a 25ft daycruiser. That means 3 hours with a 45kWh battery or a 60 NM range. At 24 knots we get 50 NM. The mentioned 30% jump in efficiency needs to be proven in empirically but the model seems reliable.

Our market research suggests that the best planing electrical boats on the market today reach 15 NM at 14 knots. But that is not of much help since we compete with noisy, smelly and bumpy combustion engine boats. We will beat them all :-)

So it is kind of a fantasy after all. ... See MoreSee Less

Kalle CentergrenI have been playing with the thought if of blowing pressurised air in holes along the leading edges of the foil struts would reduce the drag more than what the compressor would consume. Might be worth a test?

Gustav HasselskogKalle Centergren, the friction drag from the struts and rudder is in our case 10% of the total. I don't know if air would help. The US navy did some tests during the 60s especially when trying to go >70 knots. I would spend the money on buying the strongest carbon and reduce strut thickness.

David GrayYou might find it an interesting comparison - the bolt 18 is 18ft long, weighs around 850kg with its 24kwh pack, turns a traditional propeller (11in) at 4000rpm for top speed of 30knots (100kw), but cruises comfortably at 20knots drawing 40kw. Hence we met our target range of 10miles at 20knots. What you guys are doing as fabulous - but how does she cope with waves?...

John RushworthThe mysterious loss or part of the loss you refer to. Is the motor running at optimum efficiency ( and a good balance of voltage vs Amps) at your cruise speed? Your prop is very efficient which is one the main factors for sure in helping overall propulsion efficiency.

Tom KvalvagnesThe car owner experience; you cant use 100% of the battery-capacity in real world - it will not be 100% at the start and you cant get 0% in the end - so the practical range will be maybe 60% of the total calculated range. And where to charge with good capacity at sea? ...but fantastic project - problems are to be solved.

John Rushworth6% in drive train doesn't sound right. Say controller and wiring 0.95 at cruise and motor at cruise is 0.93 then 0.95 x 0.93= 0.88 or 88% efficient x prop efficiency of 0.72= 0.63 so overall system efficiency from battery to thrust=63% efficiency, (excludes round trip charging efficiency of batteries) which is good. Torqueedo state about 52% average. My system about 50%. Prop is key.

Tom KvalvagnesMaybe its here somewhere - but - how effecient is the foiling at 20+ knots compare to planing? One thing is the actual travel at steady 20+ knots - but the accelration costs power - and if the user are using the boat the way a runaboat is used it will be many stop/starts. And as they sayb - weight is crucial - with 4 passengers it get a lot harder...

John RushworthI was just looking at battery weight. Assuming say 1kWh stored energy weighs about 13 Kg and to achieve the 60nm range at 20 knots you'd need 60 kWh stored and so about 45kWh useable that's 780 kg of batteries before motor weight etc, so roughly 1,000 kg weight of total propulsion system? Assumes LFP chemistry.

Fantastic news!

SAERTEX AND CANDELA ENTER STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP

Paris, March 16, 2017: Saertex GmbH & Co.KG and Candela Speed Boat AB have today entered a long term strategic partnership covering the production of all carbon fibre parts, including hull and deck for Candela's electric hydrofoil boat. As a first step, 200 boats will be built in Saertex's facilities in Stade outside Hamburg, Germany.

With its 12 production sites on 5 continents Saertex is the world leader in non-crimp fabric reinforcements made of carbon, glass or aramid fibres. Through the partnership, Candela gets access to outstanding knowledge in composite materials and engineering. The agreement also enables a fast scale up of Candela's production in order to meet the global demand for the world's first all electric boat with a speed and range on par with combustion engine boats.

- I am convinced that light-weight composites is a key enabler in making all types of transportation more efficient. With Candela's ability to offer not only a good enough option to gasoline boats, but something better, Candela is unique. For us it is important to be a part of this exciting transformation of the marine industry, says Christoph Geyer, CSO at Saertex.

- We had to find a way to scale up production fast. And we needed someone that combines deep knowledge in composites with a global production approach. Saertex is the perfect answer to that. This is a big day for us, says Gustav Hasselskog, CEO and Founder of Candela.

About Saertex
With approximately EUR 350 million of annual revenue, the family-owned company SAERTEX® is the global market leader in the manufacture of multiaxial fabrics (non crimp fabrics) and core materials for the production of fiber-reinforced composites. Customers in the wind, aerospace, automotive, sports and boat building industries rely on SAERTEX® reinforcement materials made from glass, carbon and aramid fibers to achieve lighter weights, enhanced stiffness and corrosion resistance.

About Candela
Candela Speed Boat AB is developing the world’s first all electric boat with a speed and range on par with combustion engine boats. This is achieved by combining a light-weight design with hydrofoils and the most energy dense batteries. Serial deliveries are planned to start in spring 2018. ... See MoreSee Less

One of the coolest things with an electric hydrofoil boat is the acceleration you get when transitioning from planing to foiling. All of a sudden the speed just increases, the bumpiness disappears and the sound from water around the hull evaporates. Then you reduce the throttle and the motor becomes silent. ...

Since 3 months, our main focus has been the development of the second prototype. Within weeks we will release the drawings for the hull and deck to kick off the fabrication of the moulds. It has been an intensive work to get all the learnings from the first prototype into a product that shall be very close to the serial production version. One of the key development areas is to get from experimental type of electronics into proper stuff. Then for the first time, I realize that electronics can be beautiful. Look at this PCB. Or maybe I am just a bit biased :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Chris is, among other things, the lead engineer for Sailrocket, the sailboat currently holding the world speed record. So together with Hug (Hydropetere) we now have the two fastest sail boats covered. Should be a walk in the park to beat the range of the best electrical boats with a factor 3 :-) ...

Gustav Hasselskog updated the description of the group Friends of Candela.

We are in the midst of creating something completely new. An all electric speed boat with a range of close to >2 hours in 25 knots. Add to that a top speed of 40 knots and an almost silent ride. And a hull that makes no slamming in 1 meter waves. Probably a revolution.

We achieve this by combining an unique solution for low water resistance with modern lightweight materials and the most advanced battery technology.

Development is ongoing. The first prototype is launched. Serial production is planned for Q4 2017. Follow this group for updates. ... See MoreSee Less

In think this is mind-blowing: A somewhat crazy guy in Stockholm finds a brilliant guy in the French alps and asks him if he wants to be part of building an electrical boat that has a range on par with combustion engine boats. After a few months, the french guy, named Hugues, is done with all the drawings for the foils and mechanics. The guy in Stockholm then asks a guy in Guangzhou, named Simon, if he can manufacture all metal parts. Simon and his colleagues are very talented in metal manufacturing and after a few weeks he is done and ships it all to Stockholm for assembly into the boat.

Here is a sneak preview of the boat we are currently building. Compared to the design you have seen before we have tried to give her a lighter touch. The aft is lower and has gotten a negative angle in the junction with the transom. Also, the downward slope of the upper deck line is somewhat increased. And the floor is now flush with the swim platform. What do you think? Personally I love it! Bo Zolland is a star! ... See MoreSee Less

It is really an honor to work with all these brilliant engineers! ... See MoreSee Less

Now it is time to get back to the real business of getting the boat together and into the water. Here is however the final post from some great days at the giant start-up event Slush: 50 seconds on Candela in public service TV (in Swedish). Pretty cool that they picked Candela from the 1500+ start-ups at the event :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Last year I went to the worlds largest start-up conference -Slush- equipped with 250 Candela postcards. This to find someone brave enough to put some money into the project. One year later I have been invited to present on the main stage which has a capacity for 5000 spectators and hosts celebrities as Nicklas Zennström and Marcus Wallenberg. I feel very honoured for this fantastic opportunity to bring out the Candela vision. If you happen to be there it is next Thursday at 11.00. ... See MoreSee Less

Now the battery, inverter, motor and throttle are all hooked up and its spinning. Maybe not a giant leap for mankind but a big step for Candela! The little 12 kg motor can deliver 100 hp at peaks. Engineering! ... See MoreSee Less

Johan StråkanderSweet! Much less noisy than a normal 100 hp motor... and with a lot of torque I guess!
Looking forward to see it deliver in the boat!
