BIG THUNDER WIND PARK FUNDS LAKEHEAD TURBINE RESEARCH

Dr. Hao Bai, Lakehead University Associate Professor, announced that Horizon Wind Inc. would be sponsoring the development of a wind turbine by a team of Lakehead mechanical engineering students.  “I’m pleased that the developer of the Big Thunder Wind Park is helping my students complete their project,” said Dr. Bai.  “Having a renewable energy developer who is engaged with the educational community is a definite benefit for Thunder Bay and Lakehead University.”

The team of five senior mechanical engineering students explained their varying axis wind turbine technology, which harnesses energy at a greater range of wind speeds than other products currently on the market.

QUICK FACTS ABOUT WIND ENERGY

Quick FactsA modern turbine produces electricity 70-85 percent of the time, but it generates different outputs dependent on wind speed. One modern wind turbine will generate enough electricity to meet the demands of more than five hundred homes over the course of a year. Click here to read some more Quick Facts!
