Second Wind is helping a group of Dartmouth College engineering students bring sustainable development to a remote region of Tanzania. Second Wind has donated a Nomad 2 Wind Data Logger to the Dartmouth Humanitarian Engineering Project (DHE) to help determine whether winds in Tanzania’s Kigoma region can drive a wind turbine consistently and productively.

The turbine would provide electricity for tasks such as pumping water and charging cell phones and batteries for residents of Kigoma, an inland region of Tanzania bordered by Lake Tanganyika and consisting mainly of small villages that aren’t on electrical grids. DHE will use local knowledge and the small body of existing wind data to select a prospective turbine location. Students will deploy the Nomad on the site for four to six months to aggregate data from wind measurement instruments. DHE students will collect the data and use it to decide whether to go ahead with wind turbine construction.
