A journey that started in China, for a 263-foot tall wind turbine, will come to an end this week or next when the town of Scituate will see its new 1.5 megawatt wind turbine come to town.
CEO Sumul Shah of Solaya Energy LLC, a main partner in the construction of the project, tells WATD-FM that the pieces should start arriving on Thursday and Friday.
‘Solaya Energy LLC’, the third party developer, says the turbine itself will begin its trek from Providence, Rhode Island.
Shah says the turbine will arrive in pieces – some of which are oversized and overweight. He says they will be given special treatment, though.
Shah says the turbine, to be erected on land next to the Water Treatment Plant on The Driftway, will provide power, for most, if not all, of the municipal buildings in town.
The turbine itself will begin its trek from Providence Rhode Island, where it arrived earlier this month. It was completed in October at a manufacturing plant in China.
Shah says most turns are easy to navigate; but when the turbine reaches Scituate, he says that, instead of going around the Route 3A roundabout, it will have to go right through it.
