SV Delos, powering the gas free dream
SV Delos is a world famous sailing boat which we have recently installed 8 Transporter Energy 100ah lithium deep cycle batteries on board as a drop in for the old lead acid batteries.
These new LiFePO4 batteries also allowed for an induction hob to be fitted which in turn keeps the gallery cooler during cooking as there is less wasted heat compared to a propane stove.
SV Delos is the first sailing boat to eliminate all gas by using Transporter Energy's LiFePO4 batteries. Thanks to the increase in battery power, this allowed the boat to run completely on electricity, eliminating the need for gas, and allowing the boat to become gas free. We completed a full gas to electric installation including a lithium bank, induction hob and fitted electric BBQ. They are loving it!
