Truth is that at sea, turbines are the only thing ‘earthed’. So we have Earth(scour on bases), Wind(intermittent and unreliable) and Fire(lightening strikes). Add in rust from a saline environment and grout that shakes loose due to the vibration and … Continue reading

There is a caveat here. Who provided the figures? Scottish Renewables? Surely there are 349 turbines constructed and approved in Aberdeenshire. If that error is reflected in the rest, the situation is dire! This is a terrible legacy for … Continue reading
