                        Abstract

                        As part of my final year studies I was fortunate enough to participate in an Internship program with Leighton Contractor’s. During the internship I was placed in a small electrical design team, responsible for the design and procurement of the Mumbida Wind Farm project. The Mumbida Wind Farm is being constructed as a turnkey package by a consortium agreement with Leighton Contractors and General Electric (GE) Energy. With a bachelor in engineering with majors in renewable energy and power engineering – this project was perfect; combining elements of both majors.

                        The following report provides a background on the successful operation of Leighton Contactors and their involvement on the Mumbida Wind Farm. In addition it details the work performed by myself as an intern including the tools and methodology used to do so. The 5 core tasks of the internship include;

                        · Meteorological Mast Design & Installation
                        · SCADA System Management
                        · 22kV Counterpoise Cable Design
                        · Primary Electrical Equipment Procurement
                        · Wind Farm Earthing Network Design

                        In addition to these points I was involved in a number of administrative and general duty activities which will be discussed later. Each task was required to be completed over the 16 week between September 2nd and December 23rd 2011. In order to successfully reach this deadline I was required to apply knowledge obtained during my studies as well as develop new skills in the workplace. This was mostly done so with the cooperation and guidance of team members Surendran Nair and Siva Vadiveloo.

                        As detailed in the report, each task did have its own challenges and problems – fortunately all were eventually satisfied as required. The internship itself can be considered just as successful having developed the industry skills to apply myself as a prominent engineer of the future.
