Power for Christmas

The turbine was energised on the afternoon of Saturday 13th December and exported its first power power to the grid for a short period.  There are some loose ends to be tied up in regard to the controller installation, and the turbine requires this for continuous operation, but the commissioning certificate will be signed off by Enercon as of 12th Dec. It should be continuously running in the next week.

We have also been advised this week that the subsea cable from Jura to the mainland has now been repaired and supply reinstated to the islands, so the wind turbine should be able to export to the grid at its 330kW capacity.
