WOLCOTT — The winds picked up speed Tuesday morning while EDP Renewable officials opened up a portion of Meadow Lake Wind Farm for a public up-close view.
It was all part of the company’s opportunity to celebrate American Wind Week. It offered people a chance to view one of the largest cranes in the world — a Liebherr Mobile Crane — lifting one of the largest wind turbines in the world in the middle of Indiana’s vast swath of farmlands.

EDP Renewables is the owner and will be the operator of the 200-megawatt Meadow Lake VI Wind Farm.
