Home - Skill Development & Training, Infrastructure Management - Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to commemorate the 75 years of India's Independence - RE Camp on the Operations of Wind Turbine at Kayathar
NIWE with the support of MNRE has scheduled eight events (each event are scheduled for a week duration) to commemorate the 75 years of India's Independence (Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav).
The seventh event, “RE Camp on the operations of Wind Turbine” at Kayathar (for 15 and 19 age group) was conducted successfully during 30th May to 04th June 2022.
The announcement about the event along with the instructions and venue were hosted on NIWE website and circulated through Social Media pages along with the below given Flyer.

RE camp has been attained its main objective. It created awareness and provided a good foundation on the principles of engineering behind wind energy technology and its operations in the field during all the seasons. The camp was very helpful to the participants to facilitate a valuable forum for dialogue and open exchange of views and experiences with professionals.
The participants were got knowledge about the wind energy technology, wind resource assessment, aerodynamic technology, wind components, wind electrical generator and operations of wind turbine through the class room lectures. They were also got added knowledge practically, through field visit of wind monitoring station, wind farm, research and testing facilities of large and small wind turbines and substation. Participation certificates were distributed to the participants at the end of the RE camp.
The structure and organization of RE camp was highly appreciated by the participants. The participants were very much satisfied by the quality of the content they got from the training and expressed thanks to NIWE and MNRE for arranging the free RE camp under the programme of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
