Under the Australian sun


Now that the Worls Solar Challenge (WSC) is over, it’s time again for the next WSC. Planning is already well underway for the next solar-powered prototype.

Research collaboration between Steel and Bochum University is about to enter another round, after successful cooperation on the thyssenkrupp powercore® SunCruiser and the thyssenkrupp SunRiser.

Plans call for the new model to incorporate the latest lightweight materials and the most recent developments in the areas of electromobility and energy efficiency. The next WSC in Australia is scheduled to take place in October 2017.
