SR250 Maintenance Lift Out - August 2013
Lift out at Scrabster, Caithness on 7 August 2013 for maintenance purposes following a tow through the Pentland Firth from Kirkwall with multi-cat vessel, MV Orcadia. The successful operation highlights the cost effectiveness and mobility of the turbine. It is unique in that it can easily be brought to the maintenance facility rather than have expensive mobilisation of equipment to the turbine on site.
The SR250 is now back in Orkney ready for the next intensive period of testing at its new berth at EMEC’s test site.
