We have been striving to learn more about how we can reduce our impact on the environment. When the team from Round Britain eRIB got in touch about getting Harry qualifications for driving in diverse conditions in the day and night-time, we jumped at the chance to support them. On this amazing journey with the Round Britain E-RIB challenge, we hope we can learn more about how our industry can accelerate the process of making environmental changes in powerboating.
Powerboat and First Aid Training
The EBA champions the interests of electric boat owners. Since the late 1970s, there has been a revival of interest in electric boats for pleasure boating on the inland waterways around the world. Better underwater hull designs, lighter glass-fibre construction, improved motors and batteries and electronic control and recharge systems have given birth to a new generation which is already contributing more environmentally friendly pleasure boating for the 21st century.
At the heart of our work is the need to compensate for the impact of port operations and expansion, balancing commercial activities with the needs of other port and harbour users, the interests of the local community, and the protection and enhancement of the natural environment
The maritime industry is quickly adapting to new demands related to the environment and sustainability of resources. Jotron is excited to support this unique challenge. Travelling around the UK in an electrically powered RIB increases progress for further development and engages additional observation in better understanding E-Boating.
