Truck Driver Carrying 200-Foot-Long Turbine Blade Makes Extremely Tight Turn Onto Bridge

Wind farms provide Scotland with much of its power these days, and the Scottish Government would like to have 100% of Scotland's energy to come from renewable energy technology like wind turbines.

Before these massive turbines can be built someone has to deliver the blades to the site, and some of these blades measure 200 feet long so getting them to the site is no small feat.

However, it appears the turbine blades are in good hands, and the driver from Scottish transport company McFaydens who delivers them has figured out how to make extremely tight turns with hundreds of feet of turbine in tow.

See how Mcfadyens from Scotland makes a 90 degrees right turn with a 60 metres blade with railings on both sides on the bridge. Great to see the possibilities of the SWC Super Wing Carrier. Without, it is almost impossible to do such a transport.
