Extover® sponsors the Formula Student Team BRS Motorsport e.V. of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences
The BRS Motorsport e.V. is the Formula Student Team of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences. The team has been developing and manufacturing electric racing cars for years and regularly participates in the international Formula Student competitions.
The Formula Student is an international constructor’s competition in which the participating teams measure themselves against each other in eight different disciplines. Every year in July and August, they compete against each other in various competitions in Europe, North America and Asia. In addition to the classic dynamic disciplines, such as acceleration, endurance and efficiency, the so-called static disciplines, e.g. the development of a business plan, play an important role in the ranking.
Extover supports the racing team of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences with Extover® extinguishing agent in order to help the team to safely store their lithium batteries used for the racing car. This granulate is mainly used in the team’s production hall for the racing car.
The team has relied on Extover® since last year an unwanted and spontaneous thermal reaction of a battery pack almost led to an accident. Worse things could be prevented at that time. Thanks to Extover®, the team now is prepared for major incidents in the future, which are quite possible in the event of a technical defect in the batteries.
Extover® is a special extinguishing agent for lithium battery fires and metal fires that are difficult to control. It is excellently suited for preventive fire protection as a filling material for safe storage and transport of lithium batteries in hazardous goods containers.
We are proud to be able to make a small contribution to the safety of the BRS Motorsport e.V. while handling the high-performance batteries. We keep our fingers crossed for the entire team during the upcoming events.
