Solar boat on solar energy completely burned out in Antwerp harbour

A solar boat from the Antwerp Maritime Academy went up in flames last night. The boat lay for repair in a shed in the Kambalastraat at the Houtdok in Antwerp. The fire did not go over to the shed, but there is a lot of smoke and soot damage.

The boat itself was badly destroyed. It was a solar-powered boat. A short circuit on the battery may be the cause of the fire.
