Yesterday we were present at the revealing of the eco-car to participate in the Shell Eco Marathon in Le Mans. The car has been designed and build by a team from our local high school 5 VWO class from RSG de Borgen in Leek.
They will try and make as many miles possible on 1 liter of compressed natural gas. We wish them a good race and congratulate them with their team effort in building the car.
We were happy to be able to be a small sponsor of this effort. We really want to stimulate students to go and discover technology is great fun. And we need young people to engage technology. No better way to do that by projects like the above.
Off course also the environmental aspect of the race is important. We at MPT Europe also try to minimize our footprint by working with easy to recycle materials (80% of our materials are aluminum) and we generate approx. 70% of our own energy requirements by solar energy panels on our building.
