22 April 2019. In a press release, we learn that Torqeedo (which has also built an electric speedboat using BMW i3 batteries) has developed a specialized high-thrust electric propulsion system for VIKING’s new liferaft, which is called LifeCraft. The new vehicle is designed to speed up safe evacuation of hundreds of passengers from ships at sea. The craft can be maneuvered to a safe standoff distance from the ship using the electric motors installed at each corner.
