Turbine Assembly

Barnhart was contracted by the project owner Performance
Services, Inc, based in Indianapolis, to perform turbine
assembly as well as down tower wiring. The pictured installation
is part of a 2.0 MW community wind farm, which features
the first commercial Nordic Windpower turbines installed in
the United States. One of the unique features of the Nordic
N1000 turbine is safer ground level assembly of the nacelle
and rotor blades resulting in single lift of the complete unit to
the tower top. The innovative Nordic turbine rotor uses two
blades instead of three compared to all other large megawatt turbines currently installed in the United States.
