On this photo of the wind turbine before full fairing and taken from an unusual angle, we notice details invisible on the other photos.
In the foreground, the research station is seeing from behind and the hangar housing the workshop.
Between the pylon and the assembly platform one can see the roof of the North winch.
In the distance, on the left, the shelter of the South winch and on the right the test blade placed parallel to the ground on support.
On the back of the photo it says:
SODEL S.A. 336-340 rue St-Honoré 75001 Paris 260-31-80.
