    The "Cerro El Sosneado" school builds an electricity wind turbine to be installed in its facilities.

    September 30, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      As part of the joint work that has been developed since 2017 between the Williams Foundation, the Secondary School 4-239 "Cerro El Sosneado", the company Sominar S.A., the National University of Cuyo and the community of El Sosneado, on issues related to the environment and renewable energies with a focus on young people, this year, together with the 500RPM Foundation and Williams Foundation, a wind turbine will be built and installed.

      In this regard, Luciano Gulbi, project leader, told FM Vos ( 94.5) and Diario San Rafael that "it is a very big project that although we have just started, it will change the quality of life of not only my students, but also the quality of life of the entire community of San Rafael and El Sosneado.

      This project, which is the construction of a wind turbine, started two months ago with the management and training through two foundations, Williams and 500RPM. Both foundations worked together with the Cerro El Sosneado school and began to train the children about this generator".

      He added that "we started this Monday at the UNCuyo Technology Park until Thursday afternoon and from there we will move to El Sosneado to install the wind turbine at the school. The truth is that it is a great work between UNCuyo, the two foundations and the school, it is a great possibility also in terms of learning for the children. Ten students are participating representing the school in San Rafael together with another ten students of Mechanical Engineering from UNCuyo. This team is building this wind turbine that will provide electricity to the school. It is a pilot test, but in the future it is intended to supply the whole community, taking advantage of the strong wind that is permanently present in the district".

      To conclude, the teacher commented on the project. "The wind turbine will be used to generate electricity, which will be stored in batteries and will be used as a resource when the school's electricity supply is cut off. It will also be used to supply those parts of the school where there is no electricity," he summarized.
