In The Region:

 

 A large piece of what Cuyahoga County officials hope will help drive the local economy was unloaded today at the Port of Cleveland.   The blades and generator of what will be a nearly 450-foot tall wind turbine were hoisted off a freighter.  The German built machine will be erected at Lincoln Electric in Euclid to provide power for the plant…and to show the world that Northeast Ohio is serious about building wind turbines here.  WKSU’s Kevin Niedermier was at the port for the arrival.

Listener Comments:

I recieved a copy of this story from Repower and was very glad to see Cleveland and a company as strong as Lincoln Electric joining together to further this up and comming industry in N.E. Ohio. I currently study Wind Trubine Maintenance at Stark State College and know things like this will help all of us find work in these troubled times.. Once again "Two Thumbs Up".
