Blackshaw Turbine – February 2021 update

We have managed to successfully swap inverters, and whilst this has made some improvement, we are still experiencing some noise at high wind speeds.

We are urgently exploring all options with engineers and the turbine manufacturer for the short, medium and long term. These options range from renting or purchasing a second hand inverter, major engineering modifications to the tower, disabling the turbine or even decommissioning it completely. Our priority is to eliminate any noise nuisance.

Whatever we decide to do, health and safety considerations will require very light wind and harder ground conditions to access the turbine. Our engineer is on standby, but this is unlikely to be imminent due to current weather conditions.
