College students tour BHB solar panel installation

Friday 12 March 2021: Six Bermuda College students enrolled in the Applied Science and Technology programme toured the solar thermal panel installation at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital in February. Accompanied by their technical sciences lecturer, engineer Joseph Weeks, the students, all male, were shown the control room and the solar thermal panels on the roof of the Acute Care Wing. The tour was led by the Acute Care Wing facility manager, who provided detailed information on how the system works and how the panels are secured.

“The tour provided the students with a first-hand look at the practical application of what they learn in the classroom,” said Mr Weeks. “It’s important for their development to be able to perform in the real world. I thank Bermuda Hospitals Board for accommodating us particularly during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”
