Evalan sponsors the Solar Boat project of Engineers of Innovation


Engineers of Innovation was founded in 2017 by a group of enthusiastic engineers for alumni of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences who want to use their knowledge for innovative projects. The entrepreneurial team’s mission is to contribute to sustainability in and around water through innovations. A project that Engineers of Innovation is currently working on is the Solar Boat project. In this project, they build, improve and sail with a solar boat (see image), and they participate in Spolar Sport One races and the Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge race.


An important objective of Evalan is to contribute to sustainability in various sectors with IoT. The Solar Boat project of Engineers of Innovation is in line with this. Through her sponsorship, Evalan supports the construction of the solar boat and applauds both the entrepreneurial spirit and the sustainable mission of Engineers of Innovation. Henk Schwietert, CEO of Evalan: “Practical application of new technology in innovative products means overcoming obstacles. In that process, insights are developed that are important for the larger-scale application. We are impressed by the enthusiasm with which Engineers of Innovation contribute to making mobility more sustainable.”
