Another breakdown for Hanover wind turbine

HANOVER – The wind turbine in Hanover has stopped working again, preventing the town from beginning negotiations to take control of the machine.

Town Manager Troy Clarkson reported that the turbine stopped working a little more than a week ago. He said he was not sure what the exact mechanical problem was.

“In the four years I’ve been here, this (the turbine) has been a thorn in my side,” Clarkson said.

The turbine has not been consistently operational since its installation in 2011. The Wilmington-based energy company that installed it, Lumus Construction, eventually defaulted, and Hanover Insurance, the company that held Lumus’ surety bond, became involved, Clarkson said.

Selectman Joseph Salvucci asked whether the turbine could simply be taken down. He said the turbine is a problem that he would like to see resolved before he leaves office in May.

Clarkson said he would ask the surety company what options are available to the town.
