How Wind Turbine Blades Make It Up A Mountain

Wind energy as one of the most cost effective forms of renewable energy is making a significant and rapidly growing contribution to electricity generation in China, by the end of 2014, China has become the world’s largest wind energy producer.

Yunnan province is known for its wealth of wind energy resources, with 96% of its area is comprised of mountain. At the peak of Baoding mountain at an altitude of 2900m, the construction of a government invested wind farm project is underway.

One of the challenges of the project is to transport 90 wind turbine blades to the top of the mountain, the blade is 52.4 meters long and weighs over 12 tons.

They have to be delivered to the construction site through treacherous mountain roads. C&C U480 tractor was chosen for this task.
