ESTECO nominated official supplier of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team

We're proud to announce that ESTECO has been named official supplier of  Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli for the 37th America’s Cup for the third time in a row.

“We're proud to contribute to the development of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli boats by providing our software solutions, modeFRONTIER and VOLTA, thus continuing the collaboration, which started since the conception of these fascinating flying hulls of the AC75 class”, said our President, Carlo Poloni.

In a context where innovation and accuracy have to meet America's Cup limitations, software tools like ESTECO modeFRONTIER and VOLTA become essential in developing and optimizing the new AC75 class boats in the shortest amount of time.

"modeFRONTIER is one of the essential work tools of our Team, because it supports us in optimizing the hydrodynamic profiles that will form the basis for a wider 3D analysis in the wing and rudder design of the AC75”, said Andrea Vergombello, VPP and CFD optimization, of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team.

In the past, modeFRONTIER played a key role in designing the AC75 monohull and in optimizing the navigation trajectories. With the help of our software, Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team engineers were able to design the shape of the hull they wanted in just three months. We were excited to see their hard work come to life during the America's Cup 2021 and we eagerly followed all the stages, from virtual models to the final race in New Zealand. We're now looking forward to the 2024 race.

Stay tuned for upcoming news and in-dept technical content about this collaboration.
