Wow!
    I worry about a lot of eggs in one basket.
  Apart from that  it,s a brilliant effort.
  Our world is set to get a lot more windy within the next 10 years. The storms will be a lot more powerful and I believe that the onus is on building Wind turbines that can withstand the extremes rather than just to be the biggest.

GE has had 5 of its smaller turbines collapse in 2019. I hope that has focussed their minds.

I have similar concerns to Biff

Having climbed the Arc de Triumph that is big!!

Hope it goes well.  As with any man made endeavour there will be problems from time to time.

At least when a wind turbine fails the damage is limited, as opposed to nuclear which pollutes vast areas for hundreds of thousands of years.
