With electric motors supplied by Fischer Panda on board, the MAS has started its journey from Plymouth UK to Plymouth Massachusetts.

The MAS is now in international waters heading West on its transatlantic crossing attempt.

You can follow the MAS400’s journey here: Mayflower Autonomous Ship (mas400.com)

The vessel is driven by two electric motors from Fischer Panda (2 x 48 Vshaft motors 20kW 600rpm).

Two Fischer Panda battery-charging generators, a 22 kW Panda AGT 22000 and a 4 kW Panda AGT 4000, have been installed as a backup, should conditions be less ideal.

All the best for this exciting project!
