Lake Erie Wind Turbines Viable

Say engineering firms with North Sea experience
September 23, 2013 - The six-turbines in the pilot wind farm planned for Lake Erie would not need steel and concrete foundations drilled into the bedrock under the lakebed, an international engineering team has concluded.

Instead, each turbine can sit atop a single but very large-diameter pole, or tower, much like those used for land-based wind turbines.

This "monopole," made of rolled and welded plate steel, would be driven into the 80 feet of sand, clay and glacial material under the lake before coming to rest on the shale bedrock. read more>>>
