Heysham South wind farm construction
Heysham South wind farm construction
As sunset approaches, the last rotor blade is lifted on the first of 3 Nordex wind turbines.
In this case, 2 mobile cranes are used to lift the blade in a horizontal position. The larger crane is a Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1.
The dark shape on the hub at the root of the upper blade is a worker, who is presumably directing the crane drivers by radio and/or preparing to couple the blade to the hub.
