Situation 7: Testing the new machine

Situation 7: Testing the new machine

At the wind farm site we start with two engineers testing the turbine. Richard Dougal, a control engineer, is in the control hut and reads the test results on his computer.

Lucy Williams, an electrical engineer, is at the base of the tower making adjustments to the settings with a hand-held computer. She and Richard are talking on radios.

Roger Stone, the design engineer, phones from head office to find out how the tests are going. He suggests that a mechanical engineer, Trevor Jenkins, climbs up the tower to make more adjustments for further tests.

The three engineers at the wind farm site carry on with the tests.
