In case you thought that building a wind turbine is a fairly simple matter, this video from Siemens USA gives you an idea of what is involved. A lot of concrete, for one thing. We wanted to share this with our readers. We hope you like it.

    Pretty good. Lifetime of the tower is probably almost infinite – given the concrete construction (concrete gets stronger/harder with age – the oldest concrete in the world is the Pantheon in Rome). Would be interesting to know the capacity factor difference (between this WT & tower & others) given the 120mtr height and the close to 200mtr tip height.
