Wind Turbine Construction Workshop @ Glücksburg (DE) 2017 – Review

For the third time we organized a hands-on wind turbine workshop at Artefact Glücksburg, again for American students from the DIS exchange program.

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 teaching. He has already been associated with many other PureSelfMade projects in the past.

The group was mostly women, 7 out of 10 people.

The wind turbine was successfully built and tested in the end at Artefact’s local wind turbine tower.

I started PureSelfMade in 2013 to develop and spread practical knowledge on homebuilt small wind turbines, independent energy systems, off-grid lifestyle and more. In my hands-on workshop courses I teach simple and effective solutions for those subjects and share my enthusiasm with like minded people. Read about my background.
