As the fastest growing college/university in Ohio, Stark State College has announced the addition of a new Wind Energy Research and Development Center. This project represents a public-private partnership that brings together Stark State College, The Timken Company, the Stark County Port Authority, and the Stark Development Board.
The 12,000 sf Wind Energy Research and Development Center will be a test center for wind turbines and will be operated by The Timken Company. This unique center will have the ability to assemble and test full-scale bearings systems in real world application weight loads and environmental conditions. This will allow for important research and testing to be conducted here, and will bring worldwide interest.
SōL Harris/Day Architecture was selected to bring this building to life for many reasons, some of which include our expertise and experience with research and development projects, corporate clients, and higher education.
This is an advanced project that will increase jobs and position Ohio as a leader in this new wind energy technology. Look for more details as SōL Harris/Day develops the project with Timken's engineers and Stark State College.
