Lethbridge College sets up wind turbine tower

January 13, 2010

In order to improve the training opportunities for students in its Wind Turbine Technician program, Lethbridge College installed a 22-metre wind turbine tower at the south end of its campus on Tuesday. The tower's design accommodates the various styles and makes of turbine units so students become familiar with the specifics of each brand. Minus the turbine and blades, the tower will allow students to practise ascents and descents, an important element in training and vital for their future safety on the job. Lethbridge College News
