Frisomat signs partnership with Swiss SolarXplorers SA

In the village of Payerne (canton of Vaud), in Switzerland, a truly remarkable project is about to be launched. SolarXplorers SA is planning to fly to the edge of space in 2018.

“To facilitate assembly work on the aircraft with its 25m wingspan, Frisomat designed a 30m wide building with an XL sliding door”, says Joost Van Herck. This enables SolarXplorers SA to ride the solar plane in and out for test flights or showcases, in no time at all. “By meeting such demands, Frisomat proves it fully understands in which direction we want to go with this eco adventure. As a company, they represent the same values and standards as SolarXplorers SA, which was the decisive factor in our partnership decision.”
