At Natural Generation we never shy away from a big job. Our latest challenge came in the form of a nacelle removal on a Windflow turbine located in the Outer Hebrides on the Isle of Harris.
The project involved complex logistics: not only was the turbine in an isolated area, there were the obstacles of weather and timings of flights and ferries to contend with, as well as detailed lifting plans to be executed with precision. But with the combined efforts of our Cornish and Scottish teams, the job was completed on schedule with no major issues.
The gearbox and hub will now be transported to a specialist engineering works to have the pitch system refurbished. Once complete we are looking to reinstall the nacelle in 4 to 6 weeks’ time, just in time for the winds that pick up towards the end of August.
