NC Mechanical Engineering students at Banff and Buchan College recently visited Peterhead Power Station as part of their course.

During the visit the students toured production, repair and maintenance, assembly and testing workshops, which are some of the areas where the students aspire to gain employment.

Scottish & Southern Energy plc are the UK leaders in generating renewable energy, mechanical contractors and multi-utility network & telecommunication operators.

Steven Wilson, CL for Mechanical Engineering, said: “We are grateful to SSE for their support. These visits are an essential part of our full-time engineering students’ curriculum.

“The students remarked on the vast nature of the power generation technology at the Peterhead Power Station which we all take for granted. The visits help students relate much of the theoretical training offered in the classroom.”

The tour offers students a real-world experience greatly enriching their knowledge and gives focus to their further learning, practical skills and theoretical knowledge in Maths, Science and Technology.
