Turbine blades with ice buildup

Ice_on_blade-2_thumb This 300-foot industrial-scale turbine (600 kw) in Newburyport, MA is sited just 319-feet from the public pedestrian rail trail, 350-feet from heavily-traveled U.S. Route 1, and 800-feet from the nearest residence. During the public hearing process, the developer insisted "[the turbine] was a long way from the rail trail and if the ice did shed it would be directly below." This photo is provided to by concerned residents in the City of Newburyport, MA. A video showing the ice can be viewed here: .
