Little Cheyne Court windfarm in Kent
The service period is now in full swing, one of our teams has completed a series of major component exchanges at Little Cheyne Court windfarm in Kent; here we see the blades being lifted back on to the turbine.
WTE were contracted to dismantle a fire-damaged turbine for Deutsche Windtechnik at Hyndburn windfarm; the first image shows the rotor being dismantled in February and the second shows the turbine being reinstalled in the first week of may. Our scope of work included cranes and mechanical services, blade disposal, tower reconditioning and full reinstall. The most challenging aspect was, of course, the preparation and dismantling works; these works were completed in a carefully managed manner within limited weather windows. Well done to all concerned.
