Edition 2014


Summary 2014

The Hydrocontest is the first international student competition that brings together young engineers from all around the world in the name of energy efficiency.

120 future engineers coming from France, Switzerland, Colombia, Brazil, Nederland or Australia has participated to this first edition.

The rules of the game are the equal for everyone: same engine, same battery, same dimensions. The students have to conceive, build and pilot the fastest boat.

The objective: transport more, faster, using less energy

The French team of the ENSTA Bretagne & ENSA PLV impressed everyone by winning both of the « Light transportation » category and the Long Distance race with the same boat.

In the « Mass Transportation » category, it was a full Swiss final, opposing the team of the EPFL & HEPIA against the HE Arc Engineering, who finally won.
