TANKOA SOLO HAS JUST COMPLETED HER FIRST TWO YEARS OF SAILING
Tankoa 72 metres M/Y Solo, widely recognized as one of the most innovative and sustainable mega yachts in the world, has just passed her first two years of navigation. Launched and delivered in 2018, Solo is based on Tankoa model S701 design and very similar to the previously delivered 69,4 metres long Suerte.
This vessel is equipped with all the latest environmental preservation equipment and for that reason was awarded by RINA as the most ecological yacht of the year already in her first year of operation.
MES molecular energy system is proudly part of this innovative and sustainable project, due to the presence of a customized ultrasonic antifouling protection system dedicated to the sea water intake for the fire pump system.
After 24 months of full chartering operations, we were recently able to monitor the performance of our anti-fouling system and its excellent operativity through this observation period as a confirmation of the added value given by ultrasonic anti-fouling protection, to the yachting industry.
While dry docked on a floating dock at Tankoa shipyard in Genoa Sestri for ordinary maintenance, we were therefore able to visually inspect the anti-fouling system installed and to confirm its excellent performance and maintenance status.
Moreover, the almost total absence of requested maintenance for our system by the engine room crew, among this observation period, was reported as a major additional feature respect to other electrical systems installed on board. As a matter of fact, charter operations are time-absorbing activities for the crew respect their engineering and hotel operations schedule, and for that reason if less ordinary maintenance is needed, more time could be dedicated to complete all the other functional tasks and to accomplish their visitors’ necessities.
We wish Solo and her crew to continue their fair and sustainable cruising around the world as well as to continue her successful chartering operations record, in the following years.
