Phoenix Yacht

Structural Engineering

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Phoenix Hydro-yacht is a new concept of the combination of a luxury yacht, hydrofoil technology and green energy usage for marine systems. The yacht uses solar, wind and wave motion to generate energy. this energy is then stored in form of hydrogen. the hydrogen is then used to generate the required energy via combustion or fuel cell technology to drive the yacht via electric propulsion. The hydrofoil technology will allow the yacht to achieve higher speeds with minimum energy usage. This project includes structural engineering with focus on light weight materials, buoyancy calculation, aerodynamics, manufacturing process… the structure must be rigid yet very light.
