Wind Turbine On Track for August Reactivation
Piling work should wrap up within the next week.
The Charlestown wind turbine run by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority is slated to be back up and running by mid August, according to an authority spokeswoman.
“The contractor is finishing up the installation of the foundation piles,” said MWRA spokeswoman Ria Convery in an email to Charlestown Patch Tuesday.
“We expect that to be done by the end of the week/early next week," Convery said. "Then they will pour the cement, which needs seven days to cure and once that’s done, we’ll be back up and running.”
The repairs, which the authority has said in the past are under warranty, will correct a problem with the turbine’s foundation sinking faster than expected.
