Tri-State linked to grad student’s EV speed record

cycleAlthough Tri-State did not fund Eva Håkansson’s (shown with her husband) project to build an electric motorcycle that recently set a new world speed record of 212 miles per hour on the Bonneville Salt Flats, she acknowledged both Tri-State and the Western Area Power Administration’s support of her studies by displaying their logos on her unique custom-built EV.

According to Art Mander, Tri-State’s delivery resource manager, Hakansson is a graduate student at the University of Denver, where she served on a project team that Tri-State is helping to fund with research dollars aimed at advanced carbon core conductor technologies to improve transmission efficiency.
