Windmill Hub and Drive Shaft

Manufacture the drive components for a vertical windmill under the direction of LGA (now WSP Global).  The 27.5-inch (700-mm) diameter hub, bearing holder and 6.3-inch (160-mm) diameter shaft are used to couple the blades to the generator (hidden in the structure’s vertical portion).  This windmill is near the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue à Rouyn-Noranda.
