Wind Turbines - Puerto del Rosario
#1
Driving into Puerto yesterday I saw they had started the construction of a new wind turbine (maybe more than 1) on top of the hill by the Technology Park/old Airport.
2 enormously long lorries with the column sections were parked up and 3 blades unloaded and on the ground ready for installation. It'll certainly catch the wind up there!
It explains what all the cabling work has been about going up the hill, and the purpose of the new building being constructed up there.

About a kilometre from where I live. It's clear from the trees in the picture in which direction the prevailing winds blow, which I would say it'is north north-west.

I've heard that they'll supply enough electricity to meet the needs of Puerto del Rosario and more.

That could be the case if this couple is a part of the eight wind turbines, you've reported back in January - https://fuerteventura.click/Thread-Eight...nicipality

Drove through this area today and was amazed at the progress. The blades are in place on the 2 already pictured. And up on the hill behind El Time, near the Communications site,  there are columns up for 3 more, and it looked (from quite a distance away) that they may be erecting another column.  The landscape has really changed ....

They were working on Sunday, when I drove north at midday the first was complete and the second was only a column and when I drove back at 5pm the generator and 2 blades had been fitted.

We saw two being up behind El Time a few days ago - attached.
There might me another couple or three popping up near La Matilla.
