Waterwake Solar Zipline


  • 147






  • Summary

    A solarpowered electric zipline pulling you across the lake floating in a dinghy or on a sorfboard. We turn the corner of the lake into a flat electrified roller-coaster where joydevils can get their rush of the day by an elec-tug they will never forget.

    Full description of yer concept

    Who wants to take a surf in the lake on a sunny day? It will be mostly a straight trip, and it may not be 40km/h but it can be LONG and great for a different experience in the water. Take an inflatable dinghy for a slow trip 300m forth and back or just let yourself be towed by your arms through the water. If possible we also bring larger and smaller surfboards to try some towing on them.. More people makes it slower, one person can probably go faster. This will be soooo much water-sport-fun!

    The whole thing will be set up at the lake using solar panels for charging the batteries that drive the electric motor pulling the 300m long string. The almost silent motor will not disturb birds or swimmers in the opposite side.
    -looking for some team members to join the planning and construction at BL, so send a comment or message

    Maybe this can be combined somehow https://dreams.theborderland.se/dreams/627

    And education is everywhere, so come see how simple these electric systems are set up.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    No moop.. just buildup and takedown

    Description Min amount (DKK) Max amount (DKK)
    Structures, ropes and ground pegs to hold up the endpoints 1000
    10-20 kW BLDC electric motor and pully wheels / also here I have a 10kw we can start with, so it may be no cost 5000
    Batteries 4x lead acid -approx 60Ah - If anyone has them already we can save here :) 6000
    BLDC 5kW drivers / I have already but incase they are damaged somehow we can replace them 1000
    Solarpanels, charger, wiring and other materials I have already 0
    400-600 m long 4mm paraglider Uhmpe rope 2500
    Lifevests and helmet - I have already 1
    How can other Borderlings co-create with you?

    We do need to have more borderlings teaming up to construct this - anyone interested in joining the planning buildup?

    What is this?

    Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? Nope, its solar powered, and set up away from the grid anyway.

    • Will there be light? We only run during daytime, for the sake of safety and tanning opportunities

    • Will anything BURN? Hopefully not, haha..

    • What is your audio footprint? Low electric humming when running.. and maybe we bring a soundblaster for the local halfpipe-skater atmosphere..

    • Next random dream
