WILLMAR -- Willmar Municipal Utilities wind turbine No. 3 (north tower) is out of service due to a blade position sensor failure on blade No. 3, Jon Folkedahl, director of electrical production, said today.

He said parts are scheduled to arrive Friday. Repairs should be completed and the turbine back on line Friday, he said.

"To speed up this type of repair in the future, we are looking at expanding our local spare parts inventory to include these sensors and associated cables,'' said Folkedahl.
