Ever wondered what it’s like to repair electronics at 100M in the air?
Recently we were contracted to do repair and engineering work in the HUB of a wind turbine. The wind farm was in a remote location two hours north of Sault Ste. Marie. Once the equipment was hoisted up to the top of the tower it was now my responsibility to unload the equipment and diagnose the problem. This turbine (now out of warranty) had some issues with the control systems inside the HUB, knowing our wind experience and ability to repair electronics the customer asked if we would take a look at a problem they were having. After diagnosing the issue in the hub I was asked if I wanted a photo at the top of the tower and this is what we got!
