Yıldız Technical University Wind Energy team Supported by METYX Composites
The Wind Energy team from Yıldız Technical University, which is acknowledged to be a leading technical university in Turkey, competed against nine other rival student teams in ‘Racing Aelous 2015’, held in Den Helder, The Netherlands. The Yıldız Wind Energy team’s wind powered vehicle design won the Special Innovation Award; the winner of this converted award for technical innovation is chosen each year by a distinguished panel of judges who attend the event.
Racing Aelous is organised by the foundation Wind Energy Events (WEE). The race has taken place annually since 2008 and has been held in both Denmark and the Netherlands. This international student team event has now become one of the world’s four largest sustainability energy races for wind powered vehicles.
METYX Composites has provided the Yıldız Technical University Wind Energy team with core materials and vacuum consumables to manufacture the latest design of its wind powered vehicle, which will be ready to race in 2016, and is proud of the team’s accomplishments in designing and building new vehicles powered by sustainable energy.
