Wind farm equipment for NewWind Ltd. is being trucked from Bull Arm over two to three weeks with police escorts. Two large pieces – tower and nacelle – entered St. Lawrence recently, both a welcome sight for residents. The transportation of the equipment is a major undertaking, with some of the units weighing up to 77 tonnes each.
The first delivery didn’t go without incident. One of the flatbeds carrying a tower segment bowed enough to strike the pavement, delaying the truck for several hours.
