Bodangora Wind Farm

Visited the Bodangora Wind Farm, owned by Iberdrola Australia (wikipedia entry here. It is located near Dubbo, has 33 turbines and capacity of 113.2 MW.

This is the control room where we were briefed by Michael, the site manager. There was little wind that day so conditions were perfect for visiting (but not electricty generation).

Then we went to a site where we inspected a damaged blade (63.7m in length).
