As part of Environment Week English Class sixth graders visited the Hyötytuuli Information Centre which is located near the Meri-Pori wind farm along the Reposaari road (see the photo collage below) The class learned about wind turbines and the new offshore wind farm that will be already generating power in the autumn of 2017.
The Tahkoluoto Offshore Wind Farm will encompass ten new wind turbines. A pilot offshore wind turbine in Tahkoluoto was the first offshore wind turbine to be constructed in demanding ice conditions and it has been used as a test turbine for the entire offshore wind power industry in Finland. It is the prototype for the construction of these ten new wind turbines. The English Class sixth graders returned from their field trip with a whole lot of new knowledge about a valuable energy resource.
