Submersible Motor Engineering involved in Australia’s First Electric Jetski

jetski-projectThe engineers at the University of Western Australia involved in the Renewable Electric Vehicle program have designed Australia’s first electric jet ski.

Built by a group of students, the project also had a fair amount of outside support — including an exclusively designed motor from Submersible Motor Engineering

According to UWA, the jet ski can go for around 30 minutes in its current form, though more batteries can be fitted. Directing the university’s Renewable Energy Vehicle project is Professor Thomas Braunl, who said “the major challenge was to make everything water-tight and safe; from batteries, to switches and motor controllers.”
