Wind Energy Students Take Memorable Field Trip

Students had the unique opportunity to tour the Siemens Nacelle Assembly Plant in Hutchinson and the KAMAN Composite Structures Facility in Wichita. The students were accompanied by instructors Dan Cyre and Randy Gantvoort.

Siemens assembles wind turbine nacelles as well as the company’s new permanent magnet wind turbines.  Graduate Doug Toburen works on the permanent magnet assembly line. Thanks to our tour guides Myca and Warren, who took the students through the assembly process from the bare base plate to the finished product.

KAMAN Composite Structures is a state of the art innovator and manufacturer of composite structures.  Thanks to our tour guides Noah and Carrie for taking the students through the step-by-step process of building composite components. The experience at KAMAN reinforced the knowledge and skills the students are developing as they work toward their Blade Repair Certificate.
