transporting

the last of the blades and turbines to the Oweninny wind farm development in north Mayo.  It took a few months to get them all there.  They started transporting them in Janusry.  The photos were taken on the 16th of May.


loaded and ready to go

  4. Solche Transporte stehen oft auf den Rastplätzen an der Autobahn auf den Weg zur Arbeitsstelle dürfen nur nachts fahren wegen der Länge.

  5. ...years ago I was going down a small country road and got in a traffic jam of trucks transporting these blades. They sure were long!

  12. Looks not a easy task to transport these huge blades... i have seen such blades being transported in trucks in highways here and they move slowly on the left lane. Nice shots

  20. Bill, I've seen wind farms from a distance, and I knew the blades were long; but I had NO idea they were anywhere near this long! I always love your photos.
