The DTI 3.0 install at Clarkson University will be on the roof of the Technology Advancement Center. A specially designed pad and guy wire arrangement was constructed to secure the turbine. The turbine will have a clear access to prevailing winds from the WSW and as both a research and teaching tool, the Clarkson DTI 3.0 wind turbine will serve a variety of needs for years to come.
Final duct assembly on the Clarkson Turbine was completed a couple weeks ago, but we have not caught up to posting our news. Great to see everyone helping out and a great big THANKS to the Facilities folks here!
Progress continues to be made by VISTEX on the blade molding tool. Pictured is part of the compression mold used for the composite blade fabrication. Looking forward to the first blade set using this process!
Many thanks to Asgaard Farm & Dairy for the invitation to speak about our turbine at the annual Adirondack Land Trust Meeting today on their farm. Looking forward to getting our next unit installed there! Photo below by acclaimed photographer Nathan Farb.
A little over excited to see parts coming together in the shop! Apparently the devil is in the details, so it is great to see our shop personnel so detail oriented! Below is the stub section under manufacture. Thanks to Mark Hebel for his efforts on this!
We had a great site visit to Asgaard Farm and Dairy, yesterday, to look at potential locations for their DTI turbine. David and Rhonda are terrific hosts and we look forward to working with them in the future. If you happen to be anywhere near Au Sable Forks, be sure to stop in and buy some of their wonderful goat cheese. It is delicious!
