Saw the same thing on the edge of a town near here. It was quite the sight because they truly are LONG!We waited for 10 minutes once while a transporter with a wind-turbine blade manoeuvred off the A9 road up north beyond Inverness, turning into a little country road on its way to a windfarm out on the Scottish moors somewhere. Considerable planning and driving skills needed...
You can't dispute they add beauty and majesty to an otherwise dull land scape!Did a cross country road trip in April/May and maybe half of it was on I-40 and the other half, in general geographic region around West Texas, and these fans are multiplying, over and over.
I hope they come up with a good plan to re-use them because this is no small issue, what to do with the worn out ones.
Most of that is already figured out because it is a mature industry. Scrapping of ships is a normal business thing. Scrap metal in general as well.Not trying to target anyone here, because I know you’re all just reacting to what you’ve seen/heard/read, but it’s funny how people are worried about retiring turbine blades, but not retiring oil tankers, oil platforms, tens of thousands of miles of oil pipelines, refineries, and all of the other things that feed our oil needs and wear out, but are never discussed.
