Crick Boat Show 2021 – Britain’s biggest inland waterway festival will be showcasing canal boats, exhibitors, and seminars from 20th Aug – 22nd Aug.

VoltSport, alongside some friends at The Floating Ohm will have some information regarding our electrical drive systems for narrow boats.

If you are attending then make sure you pay the stall a visit!

We offer a couple pre-built solutions for electrifying narrow boats:

Canal Boat kit

This motor is a low speed, high torque machine. The torque and power on the output shaft is shown below:


- Continuous running: 1210RPM, 90Nm, 12.4kW / 15.3HP to the propeller.

- Peak power is a massive: 1500RPM, 160Nm, 25kW / 33.7HP to the propeller

 

Wide Beam Canal Boat Kit

The motor is a low speed, high torque machine. The torque and power on the output shaft is shown below:


- Continuous running: 1000RPM, 220Nm, 23kW / 30HP to the propeller.

- Peak power is a massive: 1500RPM, 160Nm, 46kW / 61.7HP to the propeller


To run these kits beyond the continuous figures, a decent cooling system is needed.
Efficient keel cooling of the controller and motor is required, and a water glycol cooling system should be used with this motor.


These silent running kits are ideal for running up and down canals.
Typically fitted with a motor from the Engiro 205W range, they are a sophisticated, powerful and reliable water-cooled system in a 48v solution - that integrate well with the Gen4 controller range.
