|A wind turbine is a rotating machine that converts the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy. If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as a pump or grinding stones, the machine is usually called a windmill. If the mechanical energy is instead converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind generator, wind turbine, wind power unit (WPU), wind energy converter (...||01/15/2010||446|
|Another animated wind turbine demo, this time on an actual offshore wind farm in the Irish sea off the coast of Liverpool.|
Load time - pretty quick compared to the previous animated tour - fewer turbines. Overlay is from Google Earth Hacks Burbo Wind Farm file.

These wind turbines stand 257' high and weigh 196,000 pounds. Each wind turbine has 3 blades with a rotor diameter of 157' and can supply the annual electricity needs of 250 homes.||01/17/2007||1,017|
|The Osório Wind Farm produces electric energy from wind, and is located at the city of Osório, RS, Brazil. The turbine model is an Enercon E-70/2000 KW, which weighs 810 tons each. The wind farm´s 75 wind turbines are 98 metres high. Considering the blade tip positioned at a upright vertical position, such height rises up to 140 metres high. Such wind farm can be seen both from BR-230 and RS-30...||07/04/2007||2,556|
