Full harness support for Candela’s electric hydrofoiling boat

inContext have during 2021 supported Candela, a Stockholm based hydrofoiling electrical boat builder, with development, prototypes, and sourcing of cable harness for their model C8.

In the design phase, our electrical experts went through the electrical schematics with cable harness eyes to change and add all detailed data that is needed to be able to produce a full cable harness to the boat. Together with experts from Candela, the documentation was kept on a detailed level but managed in a simple way to follow for the future.

The data together with 3D models were then used to design a form board where the first physical prototype was built and delivered upon. To build a first prototype with this complexity requires both engineering knowledge as well as craftsmanship. The prototype was later used to test the electrical system including all electrical components on land and then used in the first fully built C8 boat in the water. 

inContext is usually mainly focusing on design and prototypes but in this case the insight in the documentation together with knowledge and experience from similar products makes us a good partner to support the steps into industrializing the harness for higher volumes. A data package with all cable harness details was sent out to several cable harness suppliers for quotes. After a couple of weeks with questions, discussions and presentations, Candela continued to collaborate with a supplier to optimize and deliver harnesses during the industrialization phase to electrify marine transport. 

inContext is glad to work with Candela and contribute to their mission to revolutionize and electrify the boat industry!
