For the second time in two months, the Portsmouth Wind Turbine Generator has stopped spinning.

"Due to recurring problems with oil pressure monitoring in the gearbox, the wind turbine is currently offline," Assistant Town Planner Gary Crosby said in an e-mail Friday.

"We are awaiting analysis and recommendations from our operations and maintenance contractor and the gearbox manufacturer. The turbine will be back in operation the instant the problem is resolved."

In May, the wind turbine, located at Portsmouth High School, shut down for several weeks after town officials were unable to find a "specialized part" needed for the turbine.

The turbine began spinning again in late May after workers installed a new oil pressure sensor.
