The first of 30 Siemens wind turbines set to power the 69 MW Kawailoa Wind Farm have started to arrive in Hawaii, according to developer First Wind.

First Wind says the turbine deliveries – which will continue through August – will be limited to evening weekday hours to minimize traffic disruptions, adding that no oversized loads will be transported on Sundays or holidays.

The turbine blade, tower and nacelle components will be transported on different routes based upon the dimensions of each component and maneuverability with overhanging trees, electrical and telephone lines and bridges, First Wind says.

When completed at the end of this year, First Wind's Kawailoa Wind Farm will be Hawaii's largest wind project and the developer's fourth in the state.
