Engineering students present hydroelectricity assessment to Wheal Jane
The engineering student group from Exeter Univeristy at Tremough who we reported on in February have now completed their assessment of the opportunity for a hydroelectric generation scheme at Wheal Jane. Members of the Wheal Jane board attended a presentation at Tremough last month at which the students presented their findings. The presentation was both impressive and very comprehensive, including an assessment of legal, planning and financial aspects of the project.
The company is looking forward to refining the proposals along with the University and the student team and taking the project forward in the near future. During the course of the project, the group have become good friends of Wheal Jane, and we hope that contact will be maintained as they go their separate ways following completion of their engineering courses to various parts of the UK and overseas. All at Wheal Jane wish them well, thank them for their efforts and look forward to keeping in touch in the future.
