    Wind turbines? i’ve seen ’em

    what’s the circle on the right at the start of the vid, mate?

    It’s the wind direction and speed sensor(s). There’s one on each side of the nacelle.

    Offshore wind has the potential to power every home in the UK and provide up to 70,000 jobs, according to the government

    Emphasis on “potential” and “could”! Sadly offshore turbines cost at least 6 times more to contruct in the first place, and natually also are much more expensive to maintain. A current offshore turbine will pay for itself in 10-15 years if it never breaks down. The current design life is around 20 years…


    double post!
