Proven wind turbine above Mugar Omni theatre
The size of this turbine from Proven Energy in Scotland made it a challenging installation job, which required structural engineers and the metal footing you see here. A solid foundation is required for safety reasons, but also because the turbine is placed above a domed Imax theater. The Museum of Science wanted to ensure the turbine didn't cause vibrations or noise, which it hasn't. The building on the left is the Boston Garden.
