London’s Hyde Park has a new eco-friendly feature: a solar-powered boat–the snazzy-looking 14 metre catamaran pictured here.
It looks great, and Greenbang will be sure to mosey on over whenever he’s next in the park.
Somewhat oddly, though, the press release makes great play about the boat’s monitoring and control systems (also pictured here). Apparently the boat’s manufacturer scoured the market for kit that would be capable of withstanding the “harsh on-board environment”…of Hyde Park.
We’re told the stuff (supplied by Moeller Electric) can cope with temperatures ranging from -25 to 55 degrees Celcius. We know climate change is killing the English summer, but we didn’t realise it was getting that bad.
