Sixty-two wind turbines at Meridian Energy's Project West Wind, near Wellington, stand 111 metres tall. The towers are 67 metres high, and the blades are 40 metres long. The turbines generate electricity in winds between 15 and 90 kilometres per hour. In extreme weather conditions, the turbines automatically shut down to prevent damage.
