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.
