    I work for a Wind Turbine Company as a Lead Wind Turbine Service Technician.
    I work for the largest one out there who is Denmark based.
    I thought I would share some pictures from time to time.
    Here are some pictures of Turbines from one of our competitors who had two turbines over speed in High winds, the computer didn’t shut it down at the high wind mark, the blades wacked the tower and exploded the blades into many pieces all over the fields.
    It smashed the inside of the Nacelle and tower
    from the tourque.
    Total wipe out. 1.8 million each
    Enjoy the pics from the company Suzlon turbine failure.

    The blades on the Suzlons are fiberglass. Tower is Steel.

    Today I changed out the Contactors and Capacitors in one of our smaller Turbine for the new updated version Capacitor bank.
    Top pic is the old version and bottom pic is the results after I was done.
    I added a thermostat and fan to the transformer and two new bridge mounts for new wire circuits.
    I replaced four relays and twelve fuses to handle the new load.
    I added 8 new legs of control wires (low Voltage) to get the capacitors up and running.
    See if you can spot my new items in the picture.
