TORONTO, June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Worksport Ltd (OTC: WKSP) (or the “Company”) is providing an update on one of its recent strategic partnerships. Starting as a two-year contract, Worksport has forged a working relationship with Ontario Tech University. One of many benefits is access to the world-class ACE Testing Facility, wherein the Company will be collaborating with the research team that is supervised by Professor Sheldon Williamson, PhD.
As the Canadian Chair of Research in Electric Storage Systems. Dr. Williamson has extensive experience in Worksport’s industries, having worked with and advised automotive companies including Ford and General Motors. This invaluable partnership commits Dr. Williamson’s research team to full-time work for the Company and opens doors to funding from the NPO, Mitacs. The immediate goal of this partnership is to finish prototyping Worksport’s TerraVis Solar Truck Bed Cover System by the end of Q3, 2021. OTU and Worksport will complete validation and fine-tuning for TerraVis pre-launch in Q4, 2021, and accelerate towards full manufacturing in 2022. The prototyping, validation, and fine-tuning will be managed by utilizing OTU’s ACE Testing tunnel for intense and thorough testing of TerraVis usage in ANY environment and through all types of weather and conditions.
Worksport recently hired some of the best engineering minds with the objective to create a world class team that will collaborate with Dr. Williamson and his world-class research team. For future TerraVis models, the team’s vast technological and engineering resources will combine to target TerraVis system optimizations, considering component count, cost, and reliability, to drastically boost operational efficiencies, and ultimately result in TerraVis product lines being rated at TRL-6 and above. Dr. Williamson and team, together with Worksport, will also be focused on researching newer, highly efficient ways of transferring solar energy into useable electricity. Through identified sets of coordinated collaborative research tasks, many wide-ranging challenges that stress the Electrical Energy Storage System industry today will be sensibly addressed, paving the path for Worksport to be the global consumer go-to for true green electric applications.
Worksport is extremely enthusiastic about the potential technological impacts that this symbiotic relationship will have. Ontario Tech University, with its extensive of physical and intellectual resources, in conjunction with Worksport, will result in exciting new improvements towards the company’s current and future product lines. Notably, this is just the first phase in building a highly respectable, valuable working cooperation, having already set in motion plans for additional Worksport innovations. Worksport CEO Steven Rossi comments, “My team and I are eager to further our R&D efforts with Dr. Williamson and his research team of incredibly impressive intellectuals on truly sustainable energy technology and tune our never-before-seen innovations to the practicality wonders of consumers and customer businesses at large.”
