Deepings Trading helps with renewable energy course

Published:  26 March, 2010

MARKET DEEPINGS: Deepings Trading Company and its partner business Eco Building Products have joined with Oakham-based renewable energy products supplier Navitron to help New College Stamford develop a new renewable energy course.

The new BTEC National Diploma Extended course, which is set to begin in September 2010, will provide the foundations for students who want to follow a career in electrical engineering in the renewable energy sector.

Ian Greenfield, Deepings Trading operations director said: "Getting involved with educating the next generation of electrical engineers is important. It highlights our commitment to working in partnership with the trade throughout the region including Lincolnshire, Rutland, Cambridgeshire and Nottinghamshire to promote the use of renewable energies."

Gary McPartland, market sector team manager for motor vehicle and construction at New College Stamford, said: "Students joining the course have to purchase their own personal protective equipment, tools and stationery. Deepings Trading stepped in to supply pens, pencils, files, scale ruler and tape measure to make sure that they have everything they need to start the course."

Renewable energy systems supplier Navitron is helping the college with learning resources for the new course by supplying solar panels, a wind turbine, and a heat pump for the students.
