Yes, Orlen is right, and by the looks of the truck and extra long trailer hauling it, the same set up is used for the turbine blades. Just a couple of weeks ago watched two blades negotiating a corner in our town, just missing all the light standards. We have big wind farms just west of our town.

We have mega wind farms east of Portland, Oregon "in the Gorge." It's common to see a semi pulling one BLADE on the freeways... those suckers are massive.

Well done. I had a quick look and didn't find it. Did you happen to notice the manufacturer? It didn't look like any Vestas unit I've seen.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I saw several of those units on a train going through town. Looked to be as big as a 24 ft trailer and the blades are near 200 feet long.

Dang, and I was going to vote for something found in the Nevada desert on the extra terrestrial highway.

I've got a web page following the installation of the Maple Ridge Wind
Farm
, the largest east of the Mississippi (at the time) near Lowville, NY. I followed a couple of the blade trucks - a second pick up follows the semi towing the blade with a remote control box that steers the rear wheels of the semi's trailer.

Overall an impressive project!

I worked on the wind turbines near Palm Springs Ca for six years, our situation is unique due to height restrictions from Palm Springs. The tip of the blade could not be any higher than 300 feet from the ground but the towers were still in the 200 foot range. The view was amazing, I never got over my fear of height but I did get used to it. They are truly amazing machines too

These pics may give you a better sense of the scale of these babies. They were shot in 2006 at a Windmill Farm Near Fort Supply, Oklahoma.

We have one of those lovely things sitting up on the bluff looking over the town. Thank God I cannot see it. The local college erected it. The excess energy supposedly goes back to the residents. Must be why my electric bill went up.

There are people that are against wind energy and after watching a documentary "windfall" against it on Netflix my conclusion is they belong away from homes. Wind energy is a good thing spoiled by big business. It should be self sustainable not covered by insane tax credits that reset when ownership exchanges. Some of the nacelle's would make nice campers though.
