About This Project

In January 2017 we happily welcomed a group of 15 trainees from Czech Republic. These enthusiastic youngsters spent two weeks in Seville broadening their knowledge about electricity, plumbing and renewable energy. They thereby had the opportunity to improve their English, to learn some basic Spanish and to discover Andalusia.

 

During their intership their main tasks included the following:

 

  • Recognizing the qualities and quantities of the solar energy, as much as the movement of the Sun
  • Recognizing the types photovoltaics cells: polycrystalline, monocrystalline and amorphous
  • Obtaining the characteristic parameters of the panel. Including measuring voltage and current, using a multi meter, according to the inclination grade
  • Assembling electrical panel and AC power circuits of the house, solar circuit of the house
  • Visiting solar facility of 64 kWp, connected to the network
  • Assembling plumbing installation for the shower and water taps, with the solar pump

 

Next to that, the students also enjoyed a study visit to one of the biggest solar complexes. They also had the opportunity to visit the British city Gibraltar, to discover the beautiful streets and monuments of Seville and to visit one of the football stadiums.

PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

Anika Víchová:

‘These fourteen days were absolutely unforgettable. I never would have imagined that together with my team I would be able to build a little garden house, plug in an electrical circuit or solar panels, and try to do a basic plumber’s job. Besides that, I have improved my English skills and even learnt a few Spanish words. I’m pretty sure that the experience I gained during these two weeks will be good for my future and I hope to use it again. Sevilla is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited and I met a lot of amazing people here. I am extremely grateful for being a part of this project. I would like to thank Erasmus, and of course my school, for giving me this great opportunity.’

Martin Bartoš:

‘I came here to Seville to get some new experience, practise English, and to learn new things. But it turned out to be much more than that. Not only did I learn new things from many branches including electricity, solar energy and others. I also managed to get new friends from other countries and even some from our school whom I didn’t know before. This city is awesome and I have enjoyed every minute I spent here. Overall I would say those two weeks have been some of the best ones in my life.’
