Companies Announce Partnership for Sustainable Water Sports Solutions

The partnership marks a significant milestone in the water sports industry, combining the expertise and innovations of two renowned companies to create sustainable waterskiing solutions. The installation of Sunlit Sea's prefabricated floating solar hardware at Wakeboarding Mannheim demonstrates the fusion of renewable energy technology with cutting-edge water sports infrastructure.

With Bruno Rixen's revolutionary idea of water skiing with a cableway in the 1960s, Rixen Cableway GmbH transformed the water sports landscape by introducing water skiing without the need for a boat. Since then, they have successfully realized more than 500 waterski facilities worldwide, becoming the market leader in full size cables. Their commitment to stateof-the-art technology and the highest safety standards has earned them a well-deserved reputation in the industry.

The 60 kWp floating solar installation in Mannheim is a testament to the transformative potential of the partnership. Harnessing solar energy through Sunlit Sea's innovative hardware will not only provide renewable power for the water ski facility but also contribute to reducing its carbon footprint.

Commenting on the collaboration, Sunlit Sea's CEO, Per Lindberg stated, "We are very pleased with the collaboration with Rixen Cableway GmbH. Rixen has proven to be a collaborative and forward-leaning partner, with an eye for synergies between our two companies. Rixen has received the goods and, after a few instructions from our installation crew, has become a proficient installer of Sunlit Seas' floating solar solution. Personally, I am looking forward to more and larger installations together with Rixen in the near future."

Equally enthusiastic, Rixen Cableway GmbH's Technical Leader, Wolfgang Lunghamer added, "Over the past few months we have completed our first project with Sunlit Sea. We needed to find a product that both supplies our cable system with electricity and breaks the waves generated by riders. The Sunlit Sea modules met these requirements perfectly. The excellent workmanship, smart appearance and ease of installation are further advantages of the modules. We are looking forward to the next projects with Sunlit Sea."

The deal between Sunlit Sea and Rixen Cableway GmbH showcases the power of collaboration between industry leaders in their respective fields. Both companies remain dedicated to making water sports accessible to all while raising awareness of the invaluable asset that water represents.
