Delayed parts postpone unveiling By George Brennan Cape Cod Times (MA) September 23, 2009The Air Force has scrapped a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled to celebrate its new 1.5-megawatt wind turbine while it waits for essential parts sitting in a New York port, a spokesman said yesterday.
The Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment had planned the ceremony for Monday to unveil the turbine, which is expected to generate electricity to operate a water treatment plant used in the massive cleanup of pollution at the base. When it's up and running, the wind turbine will save an estimated $600,000 on the annual $2.2 million electric bill for the cleanup program, spokesman Doug Karson said.
The $4.6 million Fuhrlander turbine is expected to pay for itself in six to eight years after it starts generating power, officials have said.
