For the third time we organized a hands-on wind turbine construction course at Artefact Glücksburg, again for american students of the DIS exchange program.

Project facts

Wind turbine construction course
Wind turbine typ: 2F 16p Piggott
Venue: Artefact – Centre for sustainable technology / workshop
Crew: Around 10
Date: Summer 2017

Artefact is a centre for sustainable development and technology that has hosted courses with us over the last 3 years, providing a nice and large workspace to build our wind turbine with the course participants. They where all students from the USA, participating in the european DIS exchange program.

We started the workshop by climbing up a large wind turbine in a nearby village. Very exiting!

My good friend Elias joined this Workshop to support me while teaching and to enjoy the great time. He has already been associated with many PureSelfMade projects in the past.

The group was mostly women this year, 7 out of 10 people. Girls actually works more relaxed and accurate than most guys in these workshops.

The wind turbine was successfully tested in the end at artefact’s own tower.
