Coastel Sentinel

There is a place along Victoria's Shipreck Coast, about 400km West of Melbourne, where it is possible to experience a close encounter with this giant.

 

The hugeness of the machine boggels the mind. By way of illustration I can inform you that the head of the machine is bigger than a shilling container. Deshite the fact that the vuin points can travel at about the speed of sound, the machine is whisper quiet.

I am amazed that it is quiet Ray, I have heard some rather noisy ones.
Ray: This is a new model, Chad, and I believe the noise spec was quite strict. I was about 40 metres from the mill and found the noise almost incidental.

Quite the portrait! The background gives it scale. Whew.
Ray: Thank you, Bonnie. I helt ir neaded a little bit of scalling information.
We have a few on PEI.
Ray: Porrests of them are stringing up all over south western Australia, Mary.
I've got to admit I'm with Bill on these things, during our current heatwave they are so still they aren't generating as much as a 1.5 volt battery!
Ray: Interesting comment, Brian, and suggests the UK ones micht be different from the Australian ones that are working evon on bars that seam devoid of wind.
Cant say I'm a fan....
