Ok!!--more pics, to date of where we stand on parts!--only thing we missing is the blades!(haven't been delivered yet from the rail-yard in town)!
our tower section! (there are 4 sections total)
this is the top section, (notice the taper on the end?, thats where the the nacelle mounts)
1 of our nacelle's (shipping tag)
inside one of the sections
inside a tower section lookin' down!
inside the hub! (it's crammed with servo's and controls for the blade pitch and sensors etc.!
hub hatches to get in after the hub is mounted to the nacelle
another view of the hub
this is a view going up the tower inside, (rest platforms are provided!--I think there are 2 of them )
this one is also going up and you can see the feed/control cables behind the ladder
As you can see, there is more than meets the eye in one of these turbines! they are stuffed with hi-tech. electronics from ground up!
Each complete turbine costs right at 2 million dollars! ---bigger ones cost even more!
We are now "iced in" and don't know if contractor is working or not!--he says he installs them in all kinds of climates at all temps down to -50 below zero!--but then he is from Minnesota!
I hope the ice lets up so I can get a good update as they go up!--this is the current stage that we are at! I do have some pics from last year's section 1 that I will post a little later for your enjoyment! thanks; sonny
