Seen here in freezing weather conditions is the partially constructed Turbine No 3 on Scout Moor which was completed during the second week of April 2008.
Due to the remote location of the site all the fuel used by the cranes had to be delivered in portable fuel tanks using the trailer on the left of the picture.
