Title: Wind turbine spotting
Post by: dan_b on July 20, 2019, 08:51:51 PM
Ok Iím currently on holiday and at the bottom of the garden is this wind turbine on a pretty decent metal tower.
Any ideas as to what turbine this is and itís power output?
The blades are moving at a fair old pace.

Aah the Britwind looks like it might be the one. Iíll see if I can get closer later today. There are two more along the road here too.  Iím in Orkney...

This oneís not quite so effective. Itís turning at less than 15RPM even with a decent breeze - if itís generating anything Iíd be surprised

I would presume the VAWTS come in to their own in the winter months on Orkney

Vawts come in to their own .       
     Being discussed and debated while still in the box.
   Take them out of the Box and then the muttering and head scratching  starts.

Certainly an Evance R9000 (Britwind after Evance went bust). There are lots of them on Orkney and they perform very well.

That one in the photo is on a hutchinson ram tilt tower that can lowered with a hyrdaulic ram for ease of maintenance.

Yeah could well be - they do look a bit odd with just the two blades and not 3
