Situated out on a promontory near Albany (which is just as well, or they would have to change the name), the wind farm is the only one I have been able to get close to.
The blades, which are longer than the wings of a jumbo, travel at their tip at a minimum of 130 kph up to an astonishing maximum (self limiting) of 290 kph. It turns itself off altogether if the wind speed hits 150 kph.
They were much noisier than I had expected (so far the video won’t load).
The speed of the tip gives an appearance of the blade being bent.
