Engineer’s Day marked with a visit to HARTEK, organized by SESI

Solar Energy Society of India (SESI), PEC organized an industrial visit of around 50 students to HARTEK Group on September 15, 2018 to celebrate Engineer’s Day. HARTEK Group is one of India’s fastest growing companies with offerings that span across Engineering, Renewables, Technology, Construction, Fuel and Manufacturing. In this period of technological advancement and sustainable development, students were eager to know about the renewable sector of power generation and transmission.

The tour started with the visit to the 66 KV substation, also known as Tesla Tower by HARTEK Group, in sector 56, Mohali, and later on to the Edison tower, Sector 74 Mohali, powered by solar module arrays, which generated around 10KW of power. Dr. Jaimala Gambhir, officer in-charge SESI & Professor of Electrical Engineering Department at PEC, accompanied the students and advised them to participate in such educational tours to bridge the gap between textbook knowledge and real-world implementation. This visit concluded with a short quiz conducted by the HARTEK Engineers, after which the winners were awarded with goodies. SESI, PEC aims to indulge practical knowledge in the budding engineers and the visit was a wonderful initiative in this direction.
