|Numerous wind turbines on the area known as the Buffalo Ridge. Some of these wind turbines are the largest ones manufactured in the United States. 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||1,043|
|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||461|
|Onera wind tunnel un Savoie, France.|
The big building is sub sonic wind tunnel as the smaller (left)is for hypersonic wind generation. The wind tunnel was originally built by Germany during WWII, and taken as war compensation by allied then built as identic in this valley.
|Recently finalized Wind Park, located at the south of Brasil.|
75 Wind Energy Converters of 2MW each, totalizing 150MW.
|The Paderborn Wind Farm in Germany consists of 11 Vestas V-66 wind turbines, each 76m high with a 1.65 MW rated power, making a total installed capacity of 18.2 MW. The wind farm is sited near Paderborn in North Rhine-Westphalia, was initiated locally by a group of developers, and is owned by 91 shareholders. Commissioning was in November 2000.|
|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||2,576|
|The Altamont Pass Wind Farm located in the Altamont Pass of the Diablo Range in Central California. It is a one of the earliest wind farms in the United States. The wind farm is composed of over 4900 relatively small wind turbines of various types, making it at one time the largest farm in the world in terms of capacity. Altamont Pass is still the largest concentration of wind turbines in the w...||08/17/2005||708|
|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.

|This is the wind tunnel at RAE Bedford (now Defence Research)where engine housings and wings were developed/tested for the Airbus. The building above with the seven cooling towers houses the Supersonic wind tunnel where Concord was developed. ||10/04/2005||389|
|This is the factory Siemens Wind Power Inc. producing wings for Siemens wind mills.|
|Nikola TESLA, electrical engineer and inventor, American scientist of Serbian origin, gave his greatest contribution to science and technological progress of the world as the inventor of the rotating magnetic field and of the complete system of production and distribution of electrical energy (motors, generators) based on the use of alternate currents. His name was given to the SI unit for magn...||10/06/2005||332|
|MEASNET means "International Network for Harmonised and Recognised Measurements in Wind Energy", and it's members have the highest accuracy in calibrations of wind energy sensors, using high technology wind tunnels.||12/19/2006||391|
