Wind Turbine Fire United Kingdom

The picture looks the same as Falmouth ? Wind turbine fires have been blamed on gearbox failures in turbines like the gear driven Falmouth wind turbines. There is no lubricant currently available that can effectively lubricate the gearbox. The gearbox in each turbine holds between 200 – 500 gallons of fossil fuel oil. The Portsmouth High School wind turbine in Rhode Island only lasted two years. Gearbox replacements and blade repair take place every 3 to 5 years at around one million dollars and then again in another 3 to 5 years http://www.portsmouthri.com/documents/Turbine_Gearbox.pdf
