Wind Empowerment Maintenance Manual

The Wind Empowerment network has recently published the third edition of a maintenance manual for “Piggott“ based designed small wind turbines, which is available for free download.

Many wind turbines inspired and based on a concept developed by Hugh Piggott have been manufactured all around the world. While most of the turbines built according to these specifications performed well initially, many broke down after some time due to a lack of appropriate maintenance.

This third edition of the maintenance manual includes preventative and corrective maintenance according to common issues that are happening, based on Wind Empowerment’s experience and feedback from members around the world.

The manual is available for free download here: Maintenance Manual for Locally Built Small Wind Turbines – Version 3.0 [PDF]
