World Solar Challenge
Solveig will take Jönköping students from Darwin to Adelaide
As the Australian spring approaches in October 2017, Jönköping’s contribution to the World Solar Challenge will be ready on the starting line. The solar-powered electric car Solveig will compete with teams from the rest of the world, taking students from Jönköping School of Engineering the 3,000 km from Darwin in the north to Adelaide in the south.
The World Solar Challenge, from 8 to 15 October, is a worldwide engineering project, held every two years, which brings together students from all over the world. The task is simple. Using a solar-powered car they have built themselves, the teams must cross the Australian continent in the shortest time possible.
In 2013, Jönköping School of Engineering was the first Swedish team to take part. With the solar-powered Solveig, 2017 will be the JU Solar Team’s third attempt, and the team is currently working flat out to develop a vehicle that can handle the tough terrain.
New goals require new sponsors
The last time, the team achieved fifteenth place. They are now aiming higher than that. In order to achieve the goal of a top 10 position, things have been organized differently, and the scope of the project has been expanded.
The PR team has contributed a lot of energy to achieving greater funding through sponsors. New companies have been contacted and engaged, including norelem. Since autumn 2016, these companies have supported the project with knowledge and parts from their vehicle ranges.
“This is very exciting,” says Anders Hedin, Business Development Manager of norelem AB. “Seeing the students’ wholehearted commitment is stimulating. Our participation has afforded us knowledge of how our components operate on a 3,000 km journey through scorching desert.”
