Field Trip at Whitsun 22/05/2017 to 25/05/2017
IAEW goes on a four-day field trip every year in the week of Pentecost, which is the traditional excursion week of RWTH Aachen University. On the field trip, energy companies and FGE member companies in particular are visited.
The last Pentecost field trip was set in the week from June 6 to 10, 2017. The field trip had stop-overs at the cities of Cologne, Essen, Münster, Bremen, Dörpen and Groningen. Visits were paid for example at the converter station Dörpen-West of TenneT, the E.ON company’s head quarter in Essen but as well power plants such as a run-of-river power station of SWB in Bremen or the nuclear power plant Lingen of RWE Power. Futhermore, the students saw a substation of Westnetz, a waste-to-energy-plant of SWB and the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg.
