In October 2016 IWEA hosted our first ever technical conference at Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville, IA. This technical conference targeted those individuals who operate, maintain and repair wind turbines and those in a direct supervisory role. Those individuals are the ones who are the end users of products and services that are employed in the wind industry. The event provided a great opportunity to gain “field perspectives” on needs, use of tools and equipment for operating and maintaining wind turbines.
The conference was well received by those who attended. IWEA wants to thank the companies who provided expertise as a part of the speaker line-up, those who exhibited and those who sponsored the event.
