The new versions of the maintenance manual. It contain 46 pages.
It takes into account environmental factors influencing maintenance needs, a list of the tools that you need to perform, the maintenance steps, more detailed maintenance procedures, troubleshooting, a check list and finally a crash page with stories of what went wrong at different SWT installation sites.
Nevertheless, other events not listed can occur. For this reason this document is meant to to be updated in the future. A database will be available online to monitor SWT maintenance actions but also failures or breakdowns that occured, so we encourage you to give us your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org to help us to improve future editions.This manual is mainly focused on Piggott SWT design concept with guy wired tower, for off-grid and grid-tied systems. However, it can also be useful for commercially manufactured turbines.
