The hydrogenerator POD 600 is THE innovating solution for sailing boats unable to fastened an hydrogenerator on their transom for technical, mechanical and aesthetic reasons.
Tested since 2014 by a few privileged sailors, this version has been able to demonstrate those useful advantages :
The hydrogenerator POD600 is delivered with a 100 mm aluminium leg; it will find its place under the hull of the boat to insure an on-board electrical output with the utmost secrecy.
Delivered in standard with the 240 mm diameter propeller (10 Amps at 5,6 knots), the POD600 accepts a range of 4 propellers for speed range from 3 to 20 knots. The output power increases in an exponential way over 6 knots.

The propeller supplied in standard with the POD600 pack is the 240 mm model which allows to produce 8 Amps at 5 knots. It is the more “universal” model guaranteeing the energy self-sufficiency on most boats with a negligible drag.
To produce at slowest speed, the 280 mm diameter is available.
To produce at higher speed to minimize the drag effect, the 200 mm diameter is available as well as the 200 mm with manual variable pitch propeller.
