Wind Turbine Tower Testing

Wind Turbine Tower Testing

The Structures Team for the Renewable Energy Project tests the wind turbine tower during their Friday meeting. The tower features a tilt-up design with a pivot point 6 feet off the ground. This way the wind turbine can be easily raised and lowered for installation and maintenance.

If you would like to learn more about the structures team, e-mail Kevin Gowan at or stop by Dana 37 at 4PM on Fridays.
