The Final Turbine Blade
The Final Turbine Blade
The final blade is prepared for lifting at Turbine No 23 as construction of the Scout Moor Wind Farm comes to an end.
Construction of the wind turbines began back in November 2007 at Turbine No 16.
By June 2008 engineers had constructed 26 wind turbine towers and installed 78 turbine blades 450 metres above sea level on Scout Moor amid adverse weather conditions of thick fog, gale force winds, torrential rain, snow and ice during the winter months of 2008.
