‘Noisy’ IRH wind turbine shut down

Controversial wind turbines on the roof of Inverclyde Royal Hospital have been shut down because they are too noisy.

Complaints were made by residents living close to the site when the six wind-powered generators were erected at the end of 2009 to provide electricity to part of the building.

One woman from nearby Arran View said the noise being generated by the equipment sounded ‘like a helicopter’.

The environmentally-friendly turbines continued to cause problems, and last year the health board asked the manufacturer to check them over.

Now, they have been taken out of action while efforts are made to resolve the issue.
