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 (archive, 2004) 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.

SACE has had a collection of photos showing transport and construction (archive 2007) of the new wind turbines, from July and August 2004.

Quote of the moment
In his first years in the White House, Mr. Roosevelt apologized for each annual deficit. Each new budget message explained that, because of unforeseen circumstances, the promise of the previous year had not been met, but next year things would be better; next year there would be a balanced budget…. The 1938 congressional elections were uncomfortably near at hand…. it was announced that the President would deliver a Fireside Chat. In it our startled ears caught the opening accents of a grand new liturgy. Spending would be resumed, but let not the heart be troubled. Spending was no longer the rock of unsound finance on which so many liberal governments had been wrecked; it was not danger, but security. Debt, if owed to ourselves, was not debt but investment.
~ BRUCE BARTON, “A Businessman’s Doubts on Government Spending,” Fortune, February 1943, p. 136. ~
