Eolos Wind Research Station Commissioning Ceremony
Oct 25, 2011. Eolos Commissioning Celebration was held late last month. Over 300 consortium members, UMN personnel, elected officials, school children and citizens turned out for the event. University President Eric Kaler and DOE Program Managers Jose Zayas as well as others address the crowd, highlighting the importance of this research station and the wind consortium to the university, state and nation. The event concluded with play-by-play pitching of the blades by Clipper Windpower’s Remote Monitoring and Diagnostic Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and letting the wind spin the rotor.
