Blackshaw Turbine – Oct 2021 update

The spare parts for the turbine finally arrived from the US and the manual furling mechanism was installed on 11th October 2021 as part of the annual service, which also tidied up the tape on the blades. The turbine can now be manually furled in the event of any future breakdown. Note the furled tail in the picture above, which then would turn the turbine out of the wind.

Meanwhile our inverter remains in the US, where global difficulties in sourcing spare parts are holding up repair. The turbine continues to generate in the meantime using a borrowed inverter.
