Students awarded a prestigious prize for designing a wind generator for developing countries

Yesterday, two students from Aarhus University won a prestigious engineering prize for the best and most innovative master project. They have developed a wind generator that can be constructed of inexpensive, local materials and that ensures power supply in poor villages and catastrophe areas.

Anders Filsøe Ramsing is among the 20% of engineering students with a craftsman background at Aarhus University.
