Fairfield wind turbine construction continues; project could be complete by year's end
FAIRFIELD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Progress is being made on the wind turbines in Fairfield and Norway, with two of the 38 structures are complete.
The whole project should be ready to go by December 31 of this year.
Each turbine is like a separate project. Fairfield Town Supervisor Richard Souza says there is one construction crane that moves from one to the next, and to move the crane from Fairfield to Norway is difficult and expensive.
Richard Souza also says that the base of each turbine has to sit for 28 days before the propellers can be installed.
