The Military Base Needs To Repond to Major Wind Turbine Failures On The Base

The military is not about to change the name of the base until the repairs are completed on the three year old multi-million dollar wind turbine.

The base has an issue over the maintenance of a 1.5 Megawatt wind turbine placed on the base in 2009. The operation involves the gear box of the wind turbine.

The turbine was installed on December 15,2009. The problem component in the gearbox appears to be a bearing. The base is continuing to run the wind turbine while they work on procuring a new gearbox that has a different/better bearing.

Gearbox replacements can run as high as one million dollars
