The Racing Aluminium hydrogenerator is designed for high or very high speed sailing boats.
It is equipped with a controlled pitch propeller, functionning electronically with an hydraulic pump. The propeller pitch is setting automatically depending on the boat speed, ensuring a minimal drag and an optimal energy output. This model is functional for a speed range from 5 to 30 knots (Multihulls, Class40, Imoca…)
The Racing Aluminium hydrogenerator has satisfied the energy needs for 95 % of the 2020 Vendée Globe fleet.

The automatically controlled pitch propeller allows to use the hydrogenerator in a large range of speeds from 5 to 30 knots with a minimal drag.
One press on a switch-on and the pump allows the blades to move to the feathered position. The drag and efforts are reduced, facilitating immersion operation, even at high speeds.
For specific performances, we can design custom blades.
