Actuant Electrical brand Mastervolt, a marine electrical power products and systems company, was chosen as a technical supplier to Oracle Team USA, which is defending the 34th America’s Cup.
“It is important for us to work with companies that understand our needs, offer high-quality products and knowledgeable technical support,” Oracle team project manager Chris Sitzenstock said in a statement. “Mastervolt has collaborated with us throughout the design process, offering products that work well in our applications, and they stand by their products.”
Mastervolt products, including battery chargers, inverters and batteries, are fitted on the two chase boats built by Naiad Inflatable Boats. In addition, the Mastervolt lithium-ion battery is used during training on Oracle Team USA’s AC72 vessel.
“Mastervolt has a deep commitment to the world of sailing,” marine and mobile group commercial leader G.R. Schrotenboer said in a statement. “Our products are designed for performance and durability in that competitive environment. We are proud to work with Oracle Team USA, outfitting their boats as they defend the oldest trophy in international sport, the America’s Cup.”
