Date/time: 11-Sep-2023 : 17:15 - BLOWN AWAY FROM COSTA

Back in the 1950s Orkney had a pioneering wind turbine. It was situated on Costa Head to get the full force of wind – which indeed in January 1953 destroyed it. But it showed what could be done and led the way for other wind developments in Orkney and elsewhere. Neil Kermode of EMEC looks at its story and significance, while archaeologist Dan Lee traces the clues from the remains.
