Project Detail


Van Hall Larenstein & Nordwin College


The VHL-Nordwin Solarboat team consists of students of a non-technical university from Leeuwarden (a city in the north of the Netherlands). For the past eleven years this team has been working on building, maintaining and improving their solarboat. Since the university connected to the team is the most sustainable university in the Netherlands our team is pushed to build the worlds most sustainable solarboat, which means that for the hull we have been using a bio composite instead of the more common carbon fiber.
Contrary to a lot of other teams our team consists of students hailing from a wide range of studies, not just sustainability or technically oriented studies.
We strive to keep on having the most sustainable boat and the most diverse team.
