This year’s Scoraig wind turbine building workshop was a small group consisting of Jim, Audun and Dave. Michael Lawley on the right joined us for one day from Ecoinnovation in New Zealand. Here he is inspecting one of his early water turbines that is producing a steady 200 watts for a neighbour of mine.
Dave’s dog looks on as I explain the workings of the furling system. We did the workshop backwards by erecting a completed turbine on the first day. Then we moved into my new workshop and did some of the tasks involved in building one. Finally we assembled and tested a 3 metre machine using some of those parts.
