Supporting Solar Team Twente
Solar Team Twente is a team of ambitious students from Saxion and the University of Twente, with only one goal: winning the World Solar Challenge 2013. A race over 3.000 km from Darwin to Adelaide across the Australian outback, where only solar energy driven cars compete. This is one of the largest student projects in the Netherlands.
Solar Team Twente tries to build a winning solar car in collaboration with many partners like HTM Technologies sister subsidiary HTM Aerotec (formerly known as PM-AEROTEC). Solar Team Twente is looking for a relationship where both parties can achieve the best results out of the cooperation. By systematically analyzing the challenge, new opportunities are discovered and addressed so that all parts in the solar car align perfectly.
HTM Technologies sister subsidiary HTM Aerotec manufactures a substantial part towards projects within the military, aeronautical, maritime and space industries. Years of experience makes HTM Aerotec therefore a valued partner for these industries in which innovation plays an key role.
HTM Aerotec processes besides quality steels also materials like titanium and super alloys such as Duplex, Hastelloy, Inconel, Nimonics, and Stelliet. HTM Aerotec offers Solar Team Twente the opportunity to make use of their technical high quality production facility. For Solar Team Twente their component requirements are being machined by HTM Aerotec to be used for example within the suspension of the solar car.
