SCSU Students Design Scooter for Xcel Energy

Xcel scooter (SCSU)

ST. CLOUD – Three students from St. Cloud State University have designed a new scooter for Xcel Energy.

The special scooter was built by undergraduate students Probal Dangol, Benam Shreshtha, and Milan Thapa.  It allows Xcel engineers and technicians to inspect their 6 to 7 feet diameter concrete tubes that are used as a form of drainage system.  Before the scooter, the employees had to inspect the slippery tubes on foot, which was time consuming and dangerous.

In August of last year Xcel came to the University with a proposal to manufacture a foldable electric scooter.

The special machine has a 10-hour battery life, can hold at least 300 pounds, and is equipped with a lamp.
