In 2017 and earlier this year, CST has been a sponsor for the team at Technico Solar Boat (TSB) and provided them with composite carbon fibre tubes to be fitted into their solar boats.
TSB is a university project consisting of engineering students from Instituto Superior Técnico that work together on the development of a racing vessel exclusively powered by the sun. TSB participates in worldwide university competitions organised by solar 1.
Here at CST, we saw what TBS was trying to achieve and wanted to support them and their cause. The competition such as the Solar 1 Monte Carlo Cup in Monaco (which TBS competed in, in 2017) are put together to raise awareness and encourage technological innovation in solar energy. Meeting the energy needs in both leisure boats and the shipping industry in an environmentally and sustainable fashion.
We are a big believer in environmental and sustainable energy at CST and it was a no-brainer to support TBS in the 2019 Solar 1 Monte Carlo Cup and to support a team of brilliantly clever engineers that are paving the way for the future.
