WhisperPower competes in Dutch Solar Challenge

01-07-2016

Tomorrow the Dutch Solar Challenge gets underway - an endurance and sprint race for solar boats with the goal of sailing 200 kilometres without refuelling. 39 teams from the Netherlands and worldwide are taking part. The event gets started on Saturday in Amsterdam with a parade through the canals and the sprint race takes place on Sunday at the Oosterdok moving on to Friesland on Monday where they will be following, until Saturday 9th July, a course running along Lemmer, Drachten, Grou and Leeuwarden with sprint races and various activities on shore in between. All of the solar boats have been self-developed by student teams. A great form of competition and self-motivation resulting in a transport means with zero emission and zero fuel costs. This technique employed sets a trend towards clean transportation for everyone. The WhisperPower solar boat has been made possible thanks to the Innovationcluster Drachten and brings high-tech, sustainability, knowledge and competition together to form a magnificent vessel. This is evident not only in the design of our solar boat, but also from the unique collaboration between the high-tech company WhisperPower and the team sailing the solar boat. By participating in the Dutch Solar Challenge, the Innovationcluster Drachten is demonstrating that it is high-tech, creative, durable and above all also great fun.
