  1. sir, Tamil Nadu is lucky to have almost all windy sites at nearly sea level unlike the ones in Maharashtra. So transporting 2 MW machine blades, it seems, is no problem. Tamil Nadu being # 1 in the country, I have always enjoyed my visit to windy sites there. We have a lot of Tamilians here at windy sites who are experts in erection and maintenance. We have a lot to learn from them. I WISH ALL THE BEST TO TAMIL NADU GOVERNMENT With best wishes.-Ranjit Mutkekar, Kolhapur, Maharashtra..
