Wind Study answer time! On Monday, we asked you to calculate the radius for a crane lift, and whether it would be considered a “critical pick” during wind turbine construction.
With components weighing hundreds of thousands of pounds, these details are crucial for the One Energy team and our crane operators to know. Think you know the answers? Find out below! (If you haven’t read Monday’s question yet, click here.)
The answers to these questions can be downloaded via the link below.
Below, a different view of a crane lifting a wind turbine generator during construction of a One Energy Wind for Industry project. (Look closely – can you see the wind energy technician inside the nacelle, ready to receive the component? Don’t worry – they’re harnessed in safely!)
