About This Project

In March 2018, we had the pleasure to host a group of 16 Polish students come to Seville for a Traineeship. Their formative training was about working in the Renewable Energies sector, in the specific field of Solar Energy and Solar House. In the company where they were working in, they developed their knowledge and carried out several tasks, such as:

 

  • Recognizing the qualities of the solar energy and the risks of working with solar energy, as well as measuring voltage and current and using a multimeter according to the inclination grade.
  •  Recognizing the types of photovoltaic cells: polycrystalline, monocrystalline and amorphous.
  • Gathering the panels in series and in parallel, and checking its parameters, as well as recognizing and identifying different types of controllers, their programming and their functioning.
  • Checking, identifying and maintaining the batteries and the inverters.
  • Assembling, calculating and designing a solar installation on a computer and assembling an electrical panel, AC power circuits and solar circuits of the house.
  • Assembling plumbing installation with the solar pump and a solar lamp with the twilight switch.
  • Visiting a solar facility of 64 kWp connected to the network and a solar-thermal facility.

Moreover, they learned some Spanish and some Spanish culture during a Spanish course and a Seville Tour, as well as they had a trip to the famous cities of Córdoba and Málaga. They could also take part in a study visit to an international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors generating electricity from renewable resources; there they understood new technologies types, whose operation depends on solar energy and they broaden their knowledge about thermo-solar technologies and its uses in the human development.

We hope that our trainees had fun in Seville, but that they especially improved their knowledge and working skills, that will be useful for their future work and private life.

PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

Adrian KordońskiAdrian  Kordoński

Thanks to the opportunity to participate in the Internships, I expanded my knowledge about renewable energy, I could also test my skills during SAFA internships, I learned to use AutoCAD. In our free time, we visited Seville, got to know the culture and local flavors, visited Malage and Cordoba, Im happy to take part in the internships

Kamil Żuchowski:

We have lived in Sevilla, a beautiful city in Andalusia. We had our training in SAFA school, and our tutors are Manuel and Javier, where always very nice and helpful. We have made fully equipped electrical installations, with overcurrent and differential-current protection, with switches including cross-lights and with a light sensor, there was also a possibility of missing the doorbell. We put the entire installation in the Solar House we made, on which we installed photovoltaic panels, now we are connecting hot and cold utility water, heated by means of a solar collector. On rainy days, we worked in a computer room using a program to design the installation. This software is called AutoCad. I am very happy with my practice in Spain, our carers are very friendly and helpful, they have taught us many new things. I am waiting impatiently for the next days of practice.
