LR1280 crane arrives at Grouse Mountain

Today the first and largest part of the LR1280 crane that will erect our wind turbine reached the project site at the Peak of Grouse Mountain. It was a difficult ascent up the steepest incline of Heaven’s Sake ski run but with some extra care it made it to the top. This crane from DLB Cranes Ltd based in North Vancouver is a monster – it can lift 300 tons and has a 90 metre boom. Even more good news, the base section of our tower crossed into Canada this morning from Washington State and will start it’s trek through Vancouver and up the mountain at 2am tonight.
