Scholar wins Triumph Motorcycles Design Award

10 October 2016

The 2016 Triumph Design Awards national final was held in July at Triumph’s main production facility in Hinckley, Leicestershire. 24 shortlisted competitors from across the UK exhibited their work and presented their entries to the judges. The judging panel led by Geoff Hurst - Triumph’s Chief Design Officer - were highly impressed by the calibre of work and by how passionately every finalist spoke about their projects.

After much deliberation the judges agreed that the winner was Ben Ball from Nottingham. Ben is an Arkwright Engineering Scholar sponsored by Atkins Transportation Systems. Ben’s entry was a cost-effective CPU cooler which used the control of thermoelectric Peltier cells to cool processors to very low temperatures. This allows them to be configured to run faster and also minimise heat damage to nearby components.

Ben won a two-week paid internship at Triumph, £500 cash and the Triumph Design Award trophy.
