Cranes used on site have the capacity to lift extremely heavy loads 100 metres into the air.

Each turbine blade unit will be assembled on the ground, ultimately coming together to weigh 120 tonnes, about the same as a Blue Whale.

A crane will be used to lift these turbine blade units to the top of each 100-metre tower. The main crane used on site is the Terex Superlift CC3800, a 650-tonne lattice boom crawler crane, supported by the Liebherr LTM 1400, a 500-tonne all terrain crane.
