Product extract:

Fitting the Blades:

Before installing the blades ensure that the blade hub covers are installed on the turbine

Take care to fit the blades in the correct orientation -

It may be possible to fit the blades in the opposite direction and this could lead to dangerous situations occurring therefore installers should check carefully before bringing the bolts to full torque.

The blades may be bolted onto any position of the three blade hubs and it is essential to support

the blades weight whilst they are being installed.

After all three blades have been fitted and bolts torqued wait 30mins before re-checking torque

Always use the correct hand tools for the job when assembling the Nacelle.

Ensure workers use safe manual handling techniques and avoid:

-       Working for long periods without adequate breaks

-       Over reaching and over stretching

-       Sustained awkward positions

-       Manually lifting items that require mechanical lifting aids
