Earth Day Commissioning

Clarkson University celebrated Earth Day, April 22, with the commissioning of DTI’s 3.0 turbine install on their campus in Potsdam, NY.

This nifty drone pic was taken by Chris Lenny of the Watertown Daily Times and worthy of a post!

Ziek Jr. inspect a ducted turbine, Thursday, April 11, 2019,  that Visser and his reach team have installed on the Technology Advancement Center’s (TAC) roof on campus. On Earth Day, April 22, Clarkson will hold a ribbon cutting event for the turbine.


TAC Turbine Update

Although updates on our Clarkson turbine install have dropped off (my fault due to a broken arm incident…) work has been progressing steadily. It is an enjoyable experience getting the campus students involved.  They are developing a web-based interface for the unit that collects data and displays it in an interactive real-time touch screen display as well as storing all the data in a database for later analysis. A example of one of the proposed interfaces is shown below, complete with a video feed of the turbine. They hope to go live in a couple months, so stay tuned!
