I wonder if anyone can recommend a company qualified to service Britwind R9000 wind turbines (formerly known as Evance)?  The company who put mine up and serviced it for the last 5 years, appears to have foundered in the wake of the Endurance wind turbine bankruptcy.
I live in Scotland.

Thank you Camillitech,

I think I have talked to him in the past on the phone, and he was working on Proven turbines them.  He would indeed be one to try, so thanks again.

Best Regards,

Leghorn.

Thank you Sean.

The job has now been upgraded from Service to Repair. The turbine stopped today.  It will not start .

The other folk that specialize in Evance/Britwind in this 'kneck of the woods' (west coast) are http://www.energee.co.uk/ They fitted and serviced three here on Raasay and I've spoken to a few of the engineers and the owner on the ferry. Seem decent enough types, I was seriously thinking of an Evance at one time.
