Saturday August 16th the staff of Scotian Wind had the rare opportunity to share their knowledge and pride in the Parker Mountain Turbine near Parkers Cove and Annapolis Royal. The community was invited to the Annapolis Tidal Generating Station Interpretive Centre on a cloudy Saturday morning to take part in a celebration and to be shuttled by bus to tour the turbine site and see inside the giant wind generator. We filled two busloads that morning and the smiles at the end of the tour said it all. The photos tell the story. Thank you Annapolis County for your hospitality.

The turbine elves were busy over the holidays and moved the components into place to install the full turbine at the site near Little River Harbour. Here is a photo of the new turbine in the misty evening fog light yesterday.

The big components were raised at St. Rose in the past couple of days. The weather has foiled the final step of attaching the blades, but they will be added as soon as the winds allow us. Ironic, yes. Meanwhile the photos of the major components added to the top of the tower are pretty spectacular. The pictures tell a story. Enjoy!

Base and tower pieces move into place as we move closer to full installation and eventually full functioning generators. Here are some more photos from the site in the past 2 days.

Stay tuned and watch us build a turbine!

Years of planning and research behind us, we have finally reached the moment when the dream takes form and sits before us in massive parts soon to be assembled into energy producing equipment. Down at Halifax Pier 31, Project Coordinator, Stephen Thomas took his camera and gave us a photo essay in the parts that will become the turbines of our future. No words needed. These beasts are awe inspiring. Impressive even in pieces as they await shipping to their eventual homes in St. Rose, Parker Mountain, and Little River. The month of December promises to be the most exciting yet for Scotian WindFields. Years of hard work come to fruition. Enjoy.
