Tackling the Climate Challenge utility Puget Sound Energy has now installed 119 turbines out of 149 due to be set up for its Lower Snake River wind farm in western Garfield County, Washington State.

The transportation of big wind turbine components to the site 13 miles west of Pomeroy should come to an end this week.

Nearly 1,200 oversized truck-trailers have already rolled along US 12 on their way to the project’s Phase 1, with daily deliveries carrying components up to 160 feet long and weighing up to 82 tons.

Some of the components for the Siemens wind turbines have been manufactured at the Siemens Energy factories in Iowa and Kansas, arriving into Pasco by train for transfer onto trucks to the wind farm site.
