Dr. Ivar Kruusenberg, Founder and CEO of PowerUP Energy Technologies, stated,”We’re delighted to be collaborating with the first Russian Russian girl to have finished the Mini Transat.
“She races onto a Proto at the Mini Class that’s created for high-definition racing and we approached Irina this past year, but the pandemic didn’t allow for items to materialise quickly.
“We utilized this opportunity to develop a customised solution for her which would be strong yet secure to accompany her through her races.
“Irina includes a heritage of attempting innovative solutions in regards to her sailing trip. As she wasn’t pleased with the power alternatives available earlier, she had been apparent in exactly what she needed: a dependable backup source for its solar panels”
Kruusenberg continued,”We sent a UP400 generator for her lately in France that will permit her to control her batteries every time she enjoys and do this sustainably.
“Being an inspiration for all, Irina is the perfect customer in the sailing world and we expect our generator affirms her in each possible scenario in the sea.
