University of Michigan Solar Car Team is a student-run organization that designs, builds and races unique solar-electric vehicles. Since its establishment in 1990, the team has built 12 custom solar-electric vehicles and won 7 National Championships, establishing itself as America’s #1 team.
Just recently, the team exhibited its newest state-of-the-art car, “Generation,” at the Tech Tip-Off session of the Automotive Manufacturing Summit and Symposium presented by Electro-Matic and Siemens.
Tensator, a sponsor of the University of Michigan Solar Car, provided its world famous patented Tensabarriers to clearly define the showcase area and establish the necessary boundaries needed to ensure Generation’s solar array was kept safe from curious fingertips.
“Using the Tensabarriers helps us to project the professional image we strive to uphold and they define a 360 degree viewing space that also prevents people from crowding in and touching or accidentally damaging the solar array or the car,” said Mikhail Gorelik, Business Director, University of Michigan Solar Car Team.
“Tensator USA congratulates the hard work and dedication of the University of Michigan Solar Car Team, said Darrell Zorn, Business Development Manager, Tensator.“Our Tensabarriers have a rich history of innovation in guiding and protecting people while clearly designating the best viewing spaces.We are proud to be a sponsor and delighted that our Tensabarriers are helping ensure “Generation” is displayed professionally and that this state-of-the-art investment is well protected.”
The Tensabarriers will continue to travel with the team around the world. This summer, the team will race from Austin, Texas to St. Paul, Minnesota to defend its championship. Tensator hopes its Tensabarriers will be used to define the winner’s circle for the University of Michigan Solar Car Team.
