WIND TOWER GONE - AN UPDATE

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Mon, 01/30/2006 - 00:52.

When I drove by the back of the Science Center on January 24th, the three steel turbine tower sections were gone.  Just the brown lawn - dead where the tower had been stored.

 

I assume the tower had been craned onto a low bed and taken to a welding shop where it would be set up in a straight line on a series of   rollers and welded back together AND radiographed. 

 

Question:  wouldn't it have been more cost effective to take it directly to the welding fabricator without the pit stop at the GLSC?  Someone fill me in please.
