Watch Contractors Hypnotically Build an Entire Wind Turbine Farm

From Popular Mechanics

Get ready to see one of the biggest and most common large technical installations of today: a wind turbine farm. First there are countless meters of trenching and cable laying, then the digout of a gigantic pit for the base. It only gets better from there.

Let’s watch what happens.

To start, the team lays a concrete disc that covers the entire base of the foundation. Then, the contractors place an anchor cage in the center and start to lay radiating rebar that extends out in a sunburst shape. Ultimately, the resulting cage assembly looks like a very wide and flat jungle gym. It extends to the edges of the concrete base and its very top lies flush with the surrounding ground level.
