Ropatec American Installation 6/27/09
Please see pictures of Ropatec's installation of the 6 KW Maxi Vertical in Virginia Dale, CO. (For more information go to: www.Ropatec.com)
This is what the turbine looks like uninstalled. It took two crains and a flat bed truck to get all the pieces of the turbine there and get it up on the pre-installed tower.
Here are some pics of the old double vertical before it was removed:
This is the old turbine that they removed.
Here are pictures and videos of putting the new turbine together:
Assembing the turbine:
Here is a picture of the base of the tower. As you can see it is quite small. Probably 6-8 ft in diameter. The commissioned a tower from a company that makes poles for ski lifts. The pole was about 40' ft tall. It probably should have been sited better and a little taller for more effective use of the machine.
See a picture of the inverter. The utility company now needs to hook this up to the grid.
