This week we have been finding out about the technology used in windfarms. Some of these windfarms are offshore and need ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) to do jobs under the water and on the sea bed.
The wind turbines are enormous!
We measure out how big the Hatston turbine is in our school playground.
|The height of the turbine from base to tip of blade when it sticks straight up - 67m|
|The length of one blade from the centre to the blade tip.|
We have done lots more estimating and measuring this week too.
