As a global leader in marine electrical systems and components, Mastervolt is once again a proud and dedicated race supplier of the legendary Volvo Ocean Race. Here, at the world’s longest sporting event, we fulfill our ambitious mission: the power to be independent. This independency from the grid is what we offer the teams during their 45.000 nautical miles around the world. All participating boats will be powered by the same innovative power system, centered around our famous Mastervolt Lithium Ion batteries en CZone digital switching. We wish all crews a safe journey across four oceans, touching six continents and 12 landmark Host Cities. We will give you all the power you need!
Michèl van de Vall of the M-Team reports from the Boat Yard in Cape Town, the location where all the boats finished after leg 2 in the Volvo Ocean Race. He talks to Abby Ehler from Team Brunel about her experience with the Mastervolt Power System, especially when it comes to ease of operation. Without revealing too much… she already loves the system and the way it is evolving.
During the full race Mastervolt’s M-Team, a dedicated team of technical specialists, will be available for the crews. The M-Team will man the technical support hotline and at each and every stopover a Mastervolt engineer is available to monitor the systems on board of every vessel and help out when problems arise.
