Scout Moor Wind Farm Tower No 7 under construction
With just a few feet to go engineers guide the base section of turbine tower No 7 down into position on top of the transformer.
The transformer is needed because the electricity produced by the turbine is alternating current, AC with a variable frequency which cannot be handled by the national grid therefore the transformer converts it into direct current, DC. then back to a constant AC frequency for transmission to the national grid for consumer use.
