BBC Maine

The BBC Maine completed the discharge of wind turbine parts at the Port Terminal last night. They have either left for Thunder Bay to load grain or will shortly do so. Above, some of the last pieces were lifted from the lower deck of the ship yesterday. This a hub that was just pulled out and is being placed onto a truck that will take it to another part of the Port Terminal until it will  be taken to a wind farm in Adair, Iowa. The hub sits at the top of the tower in the wind turbine. It connects the 3 blades to the tower. Photo taken on September 18, 2008
