Connecting Hub to Turbine Tower No 11
With just a couple of feet to go this is where the skill and expertise of the crane operator comes into its own.

with the crane operator who has to manoeuvre the 23 ton hub inch by inch in line with the holes on to the rotor shaft
so the engineers can insert the 60 securing bolts.
