Smart hydrofoil platform
Lichtweight and ultra efficient
A global market for smart hydrofoil platforms is emerging and pwrdbyQ delivers a fast go-to-market solution. The Autonomous Aquatic Drone (AAD) is based on 9+ years’ experience with the development of smart hydrofoiling platforms.
The AAD is Qconcepts’ directly deployable sensor and logistics platform. It combines PV-powered propulsion, a sensor backbone and autonomous navigation in a small autonomous seagoing craft. Operators and owners enjoy a reduced total cost of operations and an improved organizational performance. The AAD is the beachhead market product for the bigger vision on the creation of zero-emission maritime transport solutions.
Easy foiling, safe, spectacular & fun!
Within the market of performance sailing craft, Qconcepts identified the need for a true easy foiling entry solution. In 2018 the Flo1 was born. The Flo1 development is a team effort supported by Hugh Welbourn and Sailing School De Randmeren. The boat is marketed by sister organization Aeronamics and is distributed through a European distribution network.
The unique outwards pointing foils create extra stability, comfort and safety. Sailors with little sailing experience are able to fly the Flo1 within 15 minutes.
Energy from water
Two hydropower concepts are equipped with and support by Qconcepts’ technology. Using a modular approach to generate affordable and sustainable energy out of low head hydro power. The systems are installed in both river and tidal flows and offer 24/7 electricity generation for off and on grid communities. Proudly pwrdbyQ.
