I have just done a service on our local Proven 6kW (aka Proven 11, aka Kingspan Wind KW6) at the Council’s School here on Scoraig. First time it has been taken down since 2006. Installed in 2003 by Sangsters.
Nothing much goes wrong with this particular turbine. The covers blew off in 2005, and this happened again last November (2011) and I finally got the go ahead to put them back on so I took it down yesterday, and sorted out a few minor issues. Greased the bearings, and replaced some plastic bits and bobs. Renewed the cable-ties and added a few to the covers. Cranked it back up on its 15 metre free standing pole today (took about 45 minutes with a 3200kg Tirfor).
