Welcome to visit us and experience our Rand Leisure 28 Electric and Candela Seven Foiling boat
We are proud to announce a new collaboration with Candela speedboat AB.
Book a test sail and order your boat for the next season!
Träffa oss på Bullandö Marinas jubileum 24 – 25 augusti
In the spring we will get two electric boats from RAND boats that will be available for test drive in our beautiful archipelago. We will tour around various popular ports throughout the season. Kalender for this events will be sent via our newsletter and also shown on our Facebook page.
One boat is a RAND Play 24 configured as an entry level boat with a Torqueedo Deep Blue 50T (50 kW, 80 hp) outboard engine and a Torqueedo Deep Blue 40 kW BMW i3 battery. This boat is designed for a slower pace. This can also be ordered with a powerfull inboard on eg. 100kW or more.
The second boat is a RAND Lesiure 28 configured with a powerful electric motor of 155kW (peak 205kW) and a battery bank of a full 93 kW.
This boat has top performance with top speed well above 30 knots and a solid range.
The revolution that is currently underway in the automotive industry is a clear guide to what will also happen in the boat industry. Perhaps we soon can find this and similar rechargeable “powerbanks” in the archipelago shortly?
At the Geneva Motor Show, which runs until March 17, Volkswagen Group Components showcases a design study of a mobile fast charging station. With a compact design, this “powerbank” can be installed anywhere where demand exists or where charging opportunities for electric cars are missing.
The mobile charging station works just like a power bank, of the type we use for our mobile phones, but is instead designed for electric cars – considerably larger and more powerful. It has a charging capacity of up to 360 kWh, which is sufficient for charging up to 15 electric cars. The batteries in electric cars can be charged quickly and efficiently thanks to DC fast charging technology, with a capacity of 100kW.
If the station is charged with renewable energy from the sun or wind, the charging station can temporarily store the energy, thus offering CO2-neutral driving with the car.
Countries such as Sweden that input a high proportion of renewable energy into the network will for the first time be able to store a percentage of the energy with this charging station. At the same time, interim storage of energy relieves the pressure on the electricity grid during high-load times.
The charging station’s technology is based on the Volkswagen Group’s electric vehicle platform MEB and is designed to use the platform’s battery cell modules. The charging station will give batteries from electric cars a second life because end-of-life batteries can be reconditioned and then reused in these stations, which reduces the use of valuable raw materials in the long term.
