In a country that experiences an average of 2 million lightning strikes per year, it is important to protect your turbine from such exposure. For this reason, we have developed a Lightning Protection System add-on that you can purchase for your turbine.
Attached to the tower mast of the turbine, the Lightning Protection System extends two (2) meters away from the turbine. The top of the Lightning Protection sits at 30m above ground level in order to provide adequate protection. With a 69ft tower, this would mean an additional 8m or 26ft.
The top of the structure creates a virtual cone of protection that encompasses the turbine below, keeping it safe from potential lightning strikes.
