First Wind Tower Rises on Vinalhaven
9/3/2009 9:18 AM
It has been an exciting week for Cianbro team members, General Electric technicians, officials of Fox Islands Wind, and the general public on Vinalhaven Island off the coast of Maine. Crews are erecting the first tower components in a process that will eventually bring three 263 foot tall GE wind turbines online to supply the electricity needs of Vinalhaven and North Haven. The installation includes some impressive crane work by Cianbro's operators, and close coordination of support teams on the ground. The latest construction operations mean that actual power generation from the turbines is on schedule for a November start up.
