Default Proven 6k

A couple of weeks ago me and the brother went to Wales, he got a genny and tri axle trailer, and I got a Proven 6k wind generator, this will be a very long term job or I mite just play with it, it's got a bit of history, fell over, bottom of tower looks like it failed over a bit of time as the break appears to have been hammered, so to speak. OK blades pranged, and vertical bearing lost!!!
Once I've made a dent in the wife's list of todo jobs, will have a good look at it, may even sign up for a course, I think I've seen them advertised in the highlands by a chap who has been doing these for years.

I have a contact near Peterborough who has a Proven 6kw wind turbine. He has had it a good number of years now and does a lot of data gathering etc so would be a useful chap to speak to. I shall dig out his details.

Wow, thanks Rob, I've always had an interest but,work got in the way, the Proven was a retirement prezzy for me. Watched it tumble from a high price for months, and then became very reasonable, even the wife didn't fuss much.
