Fullabrook shut down due to faulty part
Wind farm could be out of action for weeks, say owners.
THE Fullabrook wind farm could be out of action for weeks due to a faulty part, its owners have said.
The Gazette revealed last week that 22-turbine site had been shut down for ‘essential’ electrical work but Devon Wind Power Ltd now say it will be off line pending delivery of the part.
A spokesperson for Irish firm Electricity Supply Board (ESB), parent company of operators Devon Wind Power, said the wind farm was taken off line on May 24 to carry out planned testing of electronic systems.
“During this testing process an issue arose necessitating the replacement of a component before the wind farm can be re-energised.
You may also want to watch:
“The testing is now substantially complete and the component has been ordered but due to the lead-time for the component to arrive, the replacement and return to service may take a few weeks.
“Devon Wind Power looks forward to Fullabrook wind farm returning to full service in the coming weeks.”
