Aavid Supports Solar Team Twente's Solar Racing Vehicle

In May of 2015 Aavid’s Design Center in Bologna, Italy received an urgent request from our favorite student racing team - Solar Team Twente from the University of Twente.

They had designed, built and tested an amazing solar car with one and only ambition: win the World Solar Challenge 2015 driving across the Australian Desert. In 2012 Aavid had developed a cooling solution for their solar-powered control electronics. Now they needed a radical weight reduction to help improve the solar car’s performance.

Timing was short. To make the race qualification deadline, we needed to conceptualize, analyze, build, test and deliver prototype cooling solutions in just a few weeks. Working closely with Solar Team Twente, that is exactly what we did.
