Megger Donates Oil Test Set to Wind Energy Technology Program at Mesalands Community College
Megger gives students the opportunity to use industry-leading equipment to gain real-world training experience

October 23, 2017

Megger recently donated an oil test set to Mesalands Community College in Tucumcari, New Mexico.  Megger's oil test set, estimated at $9,000, will give students in the Wind Energy Technology program the opportunity to use industry-leading equipment to gain real-world training experience.

Designed to assess mineral, ester and silicon insulating liquids for breakdown up to 60 kV, Megger's range of automatic oil test sets are essential in ensuring the reliable operation of oil filled electrical equipment by monitoring and maintaining oil quality.

Andy Swapp, Wind Energy Technology faculty member at Mesalands, said, "We are truly appreciative of Megger's continued support.  The new equipment will enhance our students' hands-on experience in operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repair of wind turbines, including the College's 1.5 megawatt wind turbine."

Megger has been providing wind energy students at Mesalands with high-quality, electrical testing equipment since 2008.  They recently donated a digital low resistance ohmmeter to Mesalands as well.

"It is truly an honor to have such a respected name in the industry partner with Mesalands Community College to help further the knowledge and experiences of our students in the Wind Energy Technology program," said Swapp.  "I often wonder how many wind techs just coming out of a training program know what this equipment is, let alone how to use it. It's a very proud moment for us at the College to be able to provide our students with that vital knowledge."

Dr. Thomas W. Newsom, president of Mesalands Community College, said, "The College is privileged to be able to have the high-level support from businesses and industry that we receive for our academic programs. This gift will allow us to continue to train highly-qualified professionals for the future of wind technology."

David S. Danner, director of USA distribution sales for Megger, said, "Megger is happy to help.  We have had a strong relationship with Mesalands for years and we are positive that the students will put the equipment to good use."
