MUTLU IN SOLAR POWERED VEHICLES
Mutlu Batteries sponsored "MARTI", a vehicle produced by the students of Technology R&D Club at Istanbul Marmara University, as part of their SOLAMAR Project.
"2008 Tübitak Formula G" race took place in İzmir Pınarbaşı on 31st of August. Solar vehicles' race was as exciting as conventional races, minus the motor noise and exhaust gases. All the interesting designs by the students were definitely worth seeing.
MUTLU IN SOLAR HOUSE PROJECT
Mutlu Batteries provided VRLA batteries to the Solar House Project of Diyarbakır Municipality and United Nations; coordinated by the State Planning Agency. The batteries were used to store energy in the solar panels.
Diyarbakır solar house is an important and noteworthy effort for implementing a rather simple design; yet creating living conditions using natural resources. Realized in the southeastern region of Anatolia, the project is a first step towards education of public on the uses of solar power.
Mutlu Batteries is one of the leading companies in Turkey which actively support motor sports and education of drivers. From 2000 on, we have organized the Mutlu Cup for three consecutive years, where amateur racers received special training from partner racing school educators, learning about safe driving techniques. Mutlu Cup's aim and motto was, "Race on the tracks, not on the roads".
In line with our belief in sports as a means of healthy development for the younger generations, Mutlu Batteries has been supporting Konya Selçuk University Basketball Team as its main sponsor for the last three years. The rationale behind our decision to support this particular team was based on the fact that Mutlu Batteries Selçuk University Basketball Team is a university team –it can not be categorized as one of the many other professional teams competing in the Turkish Beko Basketball League. Our aim is not just to be a sponsor of a sports team, but actively support that institutions endeavors; as in this case, we aim to support all universities and young people, through the example of Selçuk University. We also provide support in other sports fields, such as sailing, automobile and off road races.
