Study trip to London Eye

This year the legendary London Eye welcomed its 50 millionth visitor since opening in 2000. Bosch Rexroth engineers designed the hydraulics system for the 135m high structure. Now they, The JCB Academy and the EDF Engergy London Eye have come together to give more than 90 engineering students unique access to the London landmark.

The JCB Academy is a technical college which gives students unique access to manufacturing facilities and iconic landmarks. The students, aged between 16 and 18, were tasked with designing a hydraulic maintenance strategy for the highest big wheel in Europe. During the seven week project they got an understanding of the engineering behind the London landmark. The students were also given access to Bosch Rexroth´s headquarters in St Neots to build and test a hydraulic circuit and find out more about the company and the work it does on some of the world´s biggest engineering projects.
