Vestas enters motorsport

You don’t normally think about wind turbines and motorsport in the same sentence, but that will become reality when the ABB FIA Formula E Championship 2019/20 season starts in just over two months’ time.

The Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team has announced Vestas as their new principal partner for the new works team in Formula E.

The tagline “Powered by Vestas” will feature heavily, but they team won’t, however, carry their own wind turbine to charge the cars – that will still be the power delivered by the Formula E organizers.

But Mercedes-Benz and Vestas will be putting focus on the environment and sustainable energy sources, that wind turbines are.

Vestas has wind turbines in 80 countries around the world, and the Danish company is leading in the wind turbine technology.

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship season 6 will start on 22 and 23 November 2019 in Saudi Arabia.
