Three tower sections brought to the mountaintop

The middle and upper tower sections slowly crawled to the top of Grouse Mountain this morning via our back Mountain Highway. This means all components for the wind turbine are officially sitting ready on our mountain. The tower sections will not be brought to the actual project site until a few moments before they are actually erected into place. This is necessary because the project site has an exceptionally small footprint and can only handle so much gear at one time – just one of the many challenges associated with constructing a wind turbine on a mountain top. Today the crane assembly was completed and final preparation work is in motion. We are hoping for sunny skies this week.
