Faulty parts blamed for delay in completion of Hanover wind turbine

HANOVER – Hanover officials hope to get the town’s long-delayed wind turbine running after replacing several faulty parts.

The 210-foot turbine, which is adjacent to the town’s water plant, was erected over the summer but has not yet begun producing power for the town. Victor Diniak, Hanover’s public works director, said a test rotation revealed problems with part of the control system, and a pressure switch was defective.

Diniak said the part for the control system arrived Monday. The faulty switch had already been replaced.

The turbine, which was built and tested in India before being shipped to Hanover, is expected to provide about 60 percent of the power needed for the town’s water treatment plant, paying for itself in about eight to 10 years.

The final price tag was expected to be about $790,000, with state grants covering part of the cost.
