15 More Windmills (Wind Turbines) for Buffalo Mountain

2004 July

View of Barnhart Wind assembly site off Bethel Valley Road, between Oak Ridge and ORNL.  This location was used for some assembly of nacelle components:
Barnhart Wind Assembly Area off Bethel Valley Road

Assembly Area While attending Behavior Based Safety Observer training in the vicinity, I took the opportunity to get a few photos of the assembly site.

Elsewhere in town (right), at a crossing on Melton Lake Drive, turbine towers were visible down the railroad tracks.
What's that down the tracks?

See the towers and blades storage site along the railroad.

Quote of the moment
It is said that Napoleon lost the battle of Waterloo because he forgot his infantry—he staked too much upon the more spectacular but less substantial calvary. The present administration in Washington provides a close parallel. It has either forgotten or it does not want to remember the infantry of our economic army. These unhappy times call for the building of plans that rest upon the forgotten, the unorganized but the indispensable units of economic power, for plans like those of 1917 that build from the bottom up and not from the top down, that put their faith once more in the forgotten man at the bottom of the economic pyramid.
~ FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, governor of New York, radio address, Albany, New York, April 7, 1932.—The Public Papers and Addresses of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1928–1932, pp. 624–25 (1938). ~
