Turbine trials and tribulations!

The University of Warwick student society ‘Engineers without Borders’ undertook a
project to design, construct and install a 1kW turbine at Warwick’s main campus in
collaboration with colleagues within the estates office. Little did they realise that
the engineering challenge would be dwarfed by the planning, safety and other
concerns identified during the course of the two year project.

However, largely through their tenacity, the students succeeded in installing their own hand-crafted turbine and witnessing its generation of renewable energy. That was until one final twist of fate befell the project, serving to galvanise members of the team and inspire them on to bigger and better things.
