Domin announced today a new partnership with INEOS Britannia, one of the six sailing teams competing in the upcoming America’s Cup race. As part of this collaboration, Domin is supplying INEOS Britannia with state-of-the-art high-performance servovalves, enabling them to enhance the performance and agility of their race boat.
Domin is a global leader in hydraulic solutions, dedicated to delivering cutting-edge technologies in high-performance hydraulic systems that will redefine industries. With a relentless focus on innovation, Domin provides advanced hydraulic systems and components across various sectors, including aerospace, automotive, maritime, and industrial.
The America’s Cup, known for its intense competition and technical innovations, provides a unique platform for showcasing ground-breaking technology in the world of sailing. Domin’s custom servovalves operate with exceptional performance at very high-pressure level, while minimizing leakage, which has enabled the INEOS Britannia team to reduce the overall weight of the boat and minimize aerodynamic drag.
With reduced weight and improved aerodynamics, the INEOS Britannia gains a substantial competitive edge, increasing its chances of victory in high-stakes races. By minimizing leakage, the Domin servovalves ensure optimal efficiency and control, ultimately reducing energy loss and improving the boat’s overall performance.
Backed by Sir Jim Ratcliffe and led by the world’s most successful Olympic sailor, Sir Ben Ainslie, INEOS Britannia has consistently pushed the boundaries of sailing technology and is the first British team to compete in three consecutive Cup cycles since 1930. The team’s dedication to excellence has positioned them as a force to be reckoned with.
Marcus Pont, CEO of Domin, expressed his excitement about the partnership. “We are delighted to be working with INEOS Britannia, a team renowned for their excellence and commitment to pushing the boundaries of sailing technology. By supplying them with our high-performance servovalves, we aim to contribute to their pursuit of victory in the America’s Cup,” he said. “This collaboration is a testament to our relentless focus on innovation and our commitment to supporting our customers in achieving their goals.”
Domin’s role as a partner to the INEOS Britannia team will continue through the race cycle. Their customer focused approach stands out for its agility, commitment to customer satisfaction, and its drive to achieve the best outcome for the customer. Whether it is providing technical solutions, sending replacement valves on short notice, or analysing data, Domin’s technical team continues to go above and beyond to enable the INEOS Britannia team to test and develop the technology to on their boat, get out on the water faster, and maximize every minute of preparation to set the team up for a win.
The technical team at INEOS Britannia is pleased to be working with Domin and excited about using the innovative servovalves provided by Domin on their boat. “In the world of competitive sailing, every detail counts. The performance of our race boat relies on the seamless integration of advanced technologies,” said Sir Ben Ainslie. “Domin’s servovalves offer the precision, responsiveness, and reliability required to optimize the control systems of our vessel. We are confident that this partnership will help increase performance in the next America’s Cup.”
The Domin and INEOS Britannia collaboration marks an exciting milestone in the advancement of sailing technology, as both companies strive to push the boundaries of performance in the America’s Cup. By combining their expertise and leveraging the latest innovations, this partnership aims to set new benchmarks in speed, manoeuvrability, and efficiency for the future of the America’s Cup.
