In the centre of this Picture is our local coal fired powerplant with a chimney that is officially the highest point in Danmark 300 meter.

On the left and the right are the renewable energy sources, left a ship loaded with towers, turbines and blades and part for installing on land.
On land all windmills are installed in parts, as they have to be transported through small tows ánd maybe ever smaller roads.

On the right hand side is a ship from China, Da Qing Xia, delivering windmill parts

In this picture the windmill part are loaded for seainstalling, on the left one of the now small installer, Resolution, is waiting to load complete towers witch you can see on the right, they are towering 85 meter heigh, and weight over 1200 tons, the resolution can take 3 complete windmill, the newer versions which I will show later can take 6 windmills with complete blade assemblies.

in the middle a ship is ready to sail windmill bases and pipes to a shared German/Danish project the yellow bases look small, but they measure 35 meter in height and have a diameter of 6 meter, around 25 meter is going to be below sealevel, and about 10 over. Total height for the towers for this project is about 95 mtr, plus the blades, and each Tower produces 5 megawatt in energy.

To give you an idee what the dimensions are like.
Two trucks with 60 meter blades come into town.

Just random info and Pictures
Here is a picture from a hotelvessel for windmill offshore instalation
it sleeps over 60 persons and can cater to over 100, it has a special bridge that can extend and let workers walk onto barges or windmills.

Very interesting, Nico, and well photographed, though I think it would fit better in the Miscellany or Photojournalism forums.

I think picture number 5 is the same as number 4.

Hi Pa
Its fixed :smile:

I have looked at both suggestions, but fail to see if that would be better, hmmm I am a bit confused.
Mayby this section could be extended with seascapes ?

Thanks for your suggestion and I will keep looking for other places

Excellent images and commentary...! :smile:

Thanks for showing how big those things are, it's hard to believe that blade could be turned
by the wind...!

hmmm, does that mean it will be better without text in this section ?
Text is OK and makes the images better... Jim (Pa) just means the subject possibly would
fit better in one of the other sections... I'd vote for the "Miscellany" section myself... But
it's no big deal, I liked the series very much... :wink:

Thanks for your comments William.

Take care
