    “Gridlock” probably the first of many occasions of gridlock of various types, some more serious than others, this was quite minor in comparison to the ones in the future.

    No sign of the wheels coming off the wind turbine bandwagon just yet though 😦

    Most of the wind industry is full of people who know all about things falling off the back of a lorry.

    Like Ben’s comment about “Gridlock”.

    However, I have twice had larger loads fall off lorries and can sympathise with the engineers who now have to sort out the mess with insurers and lawyers.

    I saw this story in the EDP, but didn’t think much about it since there was NO mention of what the gearbox was part of. Considering it appears to be heading away from the new Outer Harbour (home of a number of windfarm installation/support vessels) I wonder why?

    The links are great Dave, off-topic I guess, but I’ve had two much larger boilers dropped off lorries in the past – fortunately they didn’t make the news! Still bear the scars though!
