Tower section delivery to scout moor

The delivery of a 22 metre 54 ton section of tower for Turbine No 5 is dwarfed by turbine towers 12,6 and 8 on Scout Moor.
The tower section is being hauled by a M.A.N. tractor unit operated by R.Collett & Sons of Halifax who had the contract to deliver from the point of manufacture through to Turbine pad location a total of 26 wind turbines

Following a public inquiry held in 2004, planning consent was granted by the Secretary of State on the 25th May 2005 for the building of Scout Moor Wind Farm.
Construction of the wind turbines began back in November 2007 at Turbine No 16.
By June 2008 engineers had constructed 26 wind turbine towers and installed 78 turbine blades 450 metres above sea level on Scout Moor amid adverse weather conditions of thick fog, gale force winds, torrential rain, snow and ice during the winter months of 2008.
