Wind Turbine Transportation Time- Lapse Video From Jay Groccia

Jay Groccia from http://www.onsitestudios.com/   writes-

Hi Joey,

I was hired by Varian Semiconductor to produce a time-lapse documentary film of the installation of their wind turbine.

I started shooting this week and I met Fred of Bodin Historic Photo while the hostess was getting me a coffee Gloucester Cruiseport restaurant. He asked me a few questions about the project and then we said goodbye. The next day I walked into his shop and as soon as I entered he exclaimed, "Hey, I met you last night!". We chatted more and then he introduced me to your blog.

Here is a sneak peek of the film – it shows the barge arriving and a blade getting transported to the site.

When I asked Mark Baldwin if he minded if I took a few snapshot of the men at work, he said go ahead and graciously introduced me to a few of the guys.  I was thinking we have posted many fabulous photos of the equipment and turbine, but few of the men working. As Mark said, “The equipment is impressive, but my crew makes it all happen.”

Mark Baldwin is the third generation of the family-owned Baldwin Crane & Equipment Corporation. To read the company’s interesting history and about their crisis/response program (and why the Baldwin apple is their log), visit the company’s website. From roots in dairy farming in Wilmington, Massachusetts, to meeting today’s heavy lifting needs in the most challenging environments, Baldwin Crane provides innovative lifting solutions. They have worked on projects as diverse as the new Mets Stadium and the search and rescue efforts at Ground Zero in New York City.
