The lower tower pieces delivered to the Mehoopany Wind Farm lay down yard in Noxen Township on Dec. 12 were some of the largest pieces to arrive so far at the site in advance of construction in 2012. Base segments, even larger yet, were slated to begin arriving the next day. The BP Wind Energy project currently employs about 50 people, a workforce that will peak in the coming year with the construction of 90 giant turbines.Photo by Rick Hidukwindfarmtowerpieces1211.jpg
