Halfway There
Halfway There
Two cranes lift the second 40 metre long 8 ton blade up to the hub
of Turbine Tower No 11.
This is a delicate operation that requires the two cranes to work in conjunction with each other.
Engineers in the nacelle are in contact by radio with the crane operators, 60 metres below, who manoeuvre the blade into position.
