Pros: the money and the scenery
Cons: the climb and the elements
Well after leaving the staging area it was ether raining or snowing.
Or hot or cold, or a combination of any of the above elements. Management was pretty much out of the picture unless the turbine was not running by the end of the day, otherwise you had a team of roughly 4 people including your lead.
Our job was to do the re torque of all main tower sections and all mounting bolts of the turbine blades and gearbox, as well as generator. We had over fifty turbines to do and 4 weeks to complete the contract. So in short you had to move it!!
The hardest part of this job was the climb for a newcomer it was 15min. of separating the men from the boys type climbing. I would have to say the scenery and the fact that I was working at 300ft was the most enjoyable part of the job next to the compensation.
