I don’t know about you but I was getting quite used to not working and could have easily carried on for a good couple of weeks! However, all good things must come to an end and everyone is now back in the office getting ready for a very busy year ahead. Like most companies involved in the small/medium scale wind …

As you can imagine, we are in the middle of an extremely busy period in the run-up to Christmas. We have 5 individual wind projects (full balance of plant) to be delivered in the next 7 weeks starting on a 225kW project in Durham next week. A few projects which we were hoping to complete this year have slipped back …

It has been some while since I last had chance to put pen to paper and write what is supposed to be a weekly blog. Please bear with me on this front as everything is kicking off in all directions and we are completely swamped with work to complete before Christmas. We have 9 x 50-250kW projects that need to …

It is funny how we suddenly get a load of new work coming in to price from totally unrelated parties for a particular service we offer. This week it has been Customer Electrics for five individual 500kW wind turbines – most of which are located around East and West Midlands. All are relatively similar in terms of scope of works …

We are heading for the same crazy situation which seems to repeat itself each year. We have a quiet(ish) summer and then come September/October it goes ballistic all the way through to the following March/April. The groundworks crew have 2 weeks off between now and Christmas and that is before we even consider poor weather and jobs taking longer than …

She’s a bit wild out there today! We have had to pull all our climbing engineers off turbines due to the wind. As a general rule of thumb we won’t allow any climbing when wind speeds exceed 10m/s and it is doing double that at the moment. We were hoping to get through a load of scheduled service and maintenance …

Wow, Friday already. A combination of being super busy and having fun means that time is flying at the moment! This week has been a bit of a mixed bag with very little chance for action shots which I regularly put up on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Windcare/202108219833128. There will be some more photos put up there next week as we …

This is the first blog post since WindCare celebrated its 3rd birthday. As ever, things are busy this end and we are in the middle of another batch of medium scale wind turbine installations. Our install crew is currently down near Cambridge off-loading and prepping a 225kW turbine on a 50m tower. We had planned to lift today/tomorrow but with …
