Students were able to explore the turbine of a wind power system at the Nordex Academy up close. Falk von Hörsten, Technical trainer at Nordex, gave a full physical tour of the Hamburg branch and explained the various functions of the turbine. The students were very interested and enthusiastic to look behind the scenes at Nordex and ask specific questions. "It is overwhelming to see what it feels like to be inside a wind turbine and I am very excited to be making new contacts with a renowned company," said Naveen Tavva from NIT Class 20.

In addition, the students had the opportunity to meet NIT alumni Andrei Chetroi, Risk Manager at Nordex, and Marius Koenecke, Team Leader Scada & IOT, and learn more about their professional careers after graduating from NIT. The day was rounded off with a workshop on risk management held by Andrei Chetroi and the students.
