WEAthens 2014: Udaya Hettigoda, Hettigoda Energy Technologies

In 1999, the international NGO, ITDG (now Practical Action) contracted Hugh Piggott as a design consultant to travel to Sri Lanka with the aim of disseminating  small wind turbine technology for the development of rural areas. Hugh trained Udaya Hettigoda, who has now manufactured, installed and maintained over 40 small wind turbines. Find out more about the technology transfer project on Practical Action’s web site or in another of Hugh’s books, Small Wind Systems for Rural Energy Services. Here is some background information of the aims & practical implementation of the project. Udaya was intending to attend Wind Empowerment’s 2nd Global Conference, WEAthens2014, however due to visa complications, he was unable to make it. Instead, he would like to share his work with the rest of the association through a series of photos and videos. They show his unique manufacturing process, which is based upon an early version of what became Hugh Piggott’s famous recipe book machine.
