Driving down the interstate from Houston to San Antonio recently, I passed a semi–trailer truck carrying a blade for a wind turbine. This isn’t your grandfather’s windmill out in West Texas, it is a blade for one of the new wind turbines being erected to generate power, usually on a wind farm as part of the sustainability movement around the world. This one was gigantic.
The blade was so large that I wondered out loud about how long it would take to do a build like that. Maybe you have wondered the same thing. Well, wonder no more. Here is a video that shows the complete process from foundation to the tip of the blades, a three week process reduced to a few minutes.
If you see other videos like this that we should post, give us a shout.
