Turbine Update

Upgrade of electronic rotor control mechanism and installation and commissioning of the new converter was completed and power started flowing to the grid on March 20. Since that date production of about 120,000 KwH has been achieved. This is normal for this time of year. There was a shutdown on Apr 19 caused initially by an alarm from gusty winds which could not be reset. This was resolved between EWT and our local technician on the morning of Apr 22. The fault was caused by faulty wiring of the alarm reset circuit during the installation and has now been corrected. The turbine is now producing normally and we are pleased with the improved information available from the new display unit in the converter.

We thank you for your patience and continued support.
