Litijeve (LiFePO4) baterije so posebej primerne za uporabo na plovilih, kot servisne baterije. Imajo izjemno kapaciteto, majhno težo in izjemno dolgo življenjsko dobo, ki je tudi do desetkrat daljša od klasičnih trakcijskih, gel ali AGM akumulatorjev. Zaradi napredne tehnologije in številnih komponent, ki ščitijo baterijo pred poškodbami, je garancija, ki jo nudijo proizvajalci, bistveno daljša od klasičnih svinčenih baterij. Kvalitetnejše litijeve baterije imajo tudi do 3-letno garancijo.

Nova tehnologija prizmatičnih celic poleg izjemne gostote električne energije zagotavlja tudi izjemno življenjsko dobo. BlueCell 170 Ah baterija omogoča kar 3000 praznjenj baterije več kot 80 %, kar je kar 1000 ciklov več. Seveda omogoča tudi praznjenje do 100 % nazivne kapacitete brez bojazni, da se bo baterija zaradi tega uničila, kot bi se to zgodilo pri svinčeni bateriji. Njihova življenjska doba je več kot 10 let oziroma več kot 6000 ciklov praznjenj preko 50 %. 

Za kaj so litijeve baterije prihodnost v navtiki

Litijeve baterije prinašajo največjo prednost kot porabniške oziroma servisne baterije. Njihove največje prednosti so:

  1. dvakrat večja uporabna kapaciteta
  2. za polovico manjša teža
  3. trikrat daljša garancijska doba
  4. do desetkrat daljša življenjska doba
  5. samodejni nadzor polnjenja in praznjenja baterije
  6. zaščita pred kratkim stikom
  7. možnost priklopa solarnih celic
  8. možnost vzporedne ali zaporedne vezave več baterij (večja napetost ali kapaciteta sistema)
  9. zelo nizko praznjenje v času mirovanja
  10. stabilna napetost baterije vse do 95 % izpraznjenosti
  11. ni vzdrževanja

Nicolas Trousel, Corum L'Epargne, Vendee Globe

French skipper Nicolas Troussel who was lying in seventh place in the Vendée Globe has dismasted on CORUM L’Épargne this morning. He was racing south in brisk NE’ly trade wind conditions some 260 nautical miles NW of the Cape Verde islands.

Troussel was not injured and is in the process of securing the boat before further assessing the situation after sunrise.

Alex Thomson, Hugo Boss, Vendee Globe

It has been a profitable night south of the Azores for Alex Thomson as the British skipper opened miles on the pack which are chasing him as they head south to deal with Theta the tropical storm which is in their path. 

The solo skipper of HUGO BOSS gained 37 miles overnight on Nico Troussel (Corum L’Épargne), the racer closest to his course, and now leads second placed Jean Le Cam (Yes We Cam!) by 31 miles this morning, the veteran French skipper now sailing a route some nine miles east of Thomson’s.

At the northerly edge of storm Theta this morning, Charlie Dalin (Apivia) gybed west at around 0300hrs this morning, electing to take what would be considered a safer route. His course had him more than 90 miles west of Thomson and Le Cam who are both on their fifth Vendée Globe races.

The leading boats were accelerating into more wind, "At the moment I have good conditions, 20-25kts and am under one reef and code zero." confided Nicolas Troussel  when contacted this morning on the phone. I will not delay in reducing sail ”

Sebastien Destremau, Vendee Globe

Reducing sail area, going on to a smaller headsail, taking a second reef - is on the agenda for the next few hour as the winds will increase significantly as they head closer to the centre of the storm, but some will probably gybe too, avoiding too strong conditions, while at the same time going early enough to make a safe gybe. Both Troussel and sixth placed Benjamin Dutreux (OMIA-Water Family both confirmed their plans to gybe. Meanwhile it will be interesting to see the routes of Thomson and Le Cam, the 61 year old French skipper is racing the 2007 boat he sailed to sixth in the last edition. Le Cam was second in 2004, abandoned in 2008 when he memorably capsized off Cape Horn and was fifth in 2012. .

The gaps will widen
While the leaders get ready to put on heavy gear, the mood is different in the middle and at the back of the pack. In the northeast and as far as the Azores, part of the fleet crosses an area of ​​lighter wind. The gaps are therefore likely to widen between them and the leaders over the course of this 5th day at sea.

Fabrice Amédéo, who left Les Sables d'Olonne on the evening of on November 10 after his technical stoppage, is tacking near the cliffs of northern Spain.

Finally, on the edge of the Bay of Biscay, Jérémie Beyou continues his journey towards the French coasts at moderate speed. He is just under 300 miles from the Vendée.

Featuring a new, Italian-inspired interior design the RIBs have EVA foam faux-teak decking, LED lighting, diamond-stitch upholstery and electric bilge pumps. Models starting with the SP520 and larger also are equipped with swim platforms. Options for the series (depending on model) include watersports tow posts and bimini tops, sunpads and sport arches and built-in freshwater showers.

The 300 - 360 models are compact, easy-to-store ergonomic tenders, whilst the 390 - 460 models are suitable for boats with larger decks and swim platforms. These RIBS also can double as day boats.

The 650 and 700 models are based on the successful hull used for chase boats in sailing events such as the Vendée Globe, ORC and Extreme Sailing Series whilst the flagship of the SPORT series, the SP800, has a hull created by racing hull designer, Petter Martens.

Wally Yachts, 43wallytender

Wally Yachts has revealed a 13 metre new tender model named the 43wallytender. Developed by Wally with Ferretti Group’s technical engineering department, the 43wallytender builds on the group’s successful 48wallytender model.

Constructed in advanced composite at Ferretti Group’s Forli-based facility, the 43wallytender will be available in a range of eye-catching colours.

The first unit is currently under production and due for completion in August. Featuring a “striking iridescent green hull” dubbed “gator green” in reference to Wally’s first sailing yacht the Wallygator, the first hull will be unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival this September.

Key features of the new model include a new ‘centre cockpit’ design that combines “the protection of the cockpit with the practicality and access of a walkaround”.

Wraparound glass will cocoon those onboard from three sides while the T-Top will shelter from above.

Elsewhere, the 43wallytender, which has been specifically designed for driver experience, easy handling and performance, will feature a flush, open deck space behind the cockpit.

Storage in the aft sunbed will be large enough to swallow Seabobs, wakeboards, scuba diving tanks and other small water toys.

Powered by a pair of Volvo Penta diesel 380hp engines, 43wallytender will have a top speed of 36 knots. Owners also have the option to upgrade to twin 440hp engines for predicted top speeds of more than 40 knots.

Speaking about the new model, chief designer and founder of Wally, Luca Bassani, said: “Our team has worked tirelessly to create a new tender that perfectly meets the multifunctional needs of today’s owners while also staying true to our Wally design philosophy. You will not find a single item onboard that does not serve a purpose in its purest, simplest and most beautiful form.”

Wally managing director Stefano de Vivo added: “Upholding Wally’s customary cool aesthetics and extraordinary performance, this latest addition to the Wally family is sure to be a benchmark of the future.”
