Geocache Description:


Tvind Møllen

Tvindmøllen var en af verdens største vindmøller (54 m). Det er et imponerende bygningsværk og en pioner indenfor vindmølle produktion, udført af skolens elever med teknisk og sagkyndig bistand.

Byggeriet startede i maj 1975, og møllen forsyner de mange omkring liggende skolebygninger med elektricitet.

I kælderen under møllen er der på store billeder vist og fortalt, hvordan byggeriet startede og skred frem. Det er her vores lille skattejagt begynder. Find svarene på følgende spørgsmål:

1. Hvor mange dage var man om at støbe mølletårnet helt til toppen? svar = X
2. Hvor mange elever arbejder med historien, med fremtiden og med hinanden? svar = Y

Skatten er gemt på følgende koordinater: N 56 15.((X*15)+19) E 008 17.(Y-133)

Til slut lige et par tekniske data på vindmøllen:
· Tårnets højde over jorden 53 meter
· Vingediameter 54 meter Bestrøget areal 2290 m2
· Maximal ydelse 900 kW
· Maximal omdrejningstal 21 omdr./min.
· Maximal vingespidshastighed 240 km/t
· Maximalt tryk på tårnet 100 tons
· Årlig ydelse 1 mio. kWt
· Startvindhastighed 2.5 m/sek
· Vindhastighed for maximal produktion 8 m/sek
· Stop vindhastighed 22 m/sek (stød) 16 m/sek (gn.snit)

THE TVIND MILL

The Tvind mill was one of the greatest windmills in the world, (height 54m) An impressive construction, and a pioneer in the windmill production, build by the students of the school with technical and expert assistance.

The foundation was started in May 1975, and the mill is supplying the many surrounding school buildings with electricity.

In the dungeons under the mill, there are a number of photo wall sheets, telling the story of the mill.
It’s here our little treasure hunt begins. Find the answers to the following questions:

1. How many days where the mill tower to be concreted to the very top? Answer = X
2. How many students are working with our history, our future and each other? Answer = Y

The cache is on the following coordinates: N 56 15.((X*15)+19) E 008 17.(Y-133)

And at last some technical data for the windmill:

· Height of tower above ground 53 meter
· Wing diameter 54 meter
· Rotor swept area 2290 m2
· Maximum yield 900 kW
· Maximum number of revolutions 21 rev./min.
· Maximum wing speed at tips 240 km/h
· Maximum pressure on tower 100 tons
· Annual yield 1 mio. kWh
· Starting wind speed 2.5 m/sec
· Windspeed for maximum production 8 m/sec
· Stopping windspeed 21 m/sec (peak) 16 m/sec (average)
