After lunch, we worked to place the heavy structure onto the post and the Beast raised it. With the cables tightened, the structure was lowered again to put each blade on. Once completed, the Beast raised it again. It stood firmly above, better than before and it was a proud moment to say the least.
The highlight of the workshop this week was learning about the electrical and digital sides of the turbine. This included setting up a circuit that made use of the current generated from the turbine mounted on the roof of the workshop. I gained hands-on experience as I connected the components together and asked about their purpose, learning useful technical information.
Over the weekend, I mingled with the other volunteers – Sofia, Harris and Danny, and climatized to the area. We had a great time, as we relaxed at the beach, played pick up football with locals and shared a large gladiator pizza in the evening. All of us were prepared and excited for the upcoming working week.
