Raising A Turbine
Preparation for putting up these turbines took months.
All pieces needed to be transported to Kotzebue and the wind farm site and put together. Pilings were anchored deep in the ground to hold the towers. Control houses were built and electric wiring and controls installed.
Putting up the turbines is just the last part of the process, but it’s an exciting all day effort that is satisfying after all that work.
