Duke Energy’s Stator Passes Glassy Mountain on Hwy 11

Duke Energy’s 1.5 million pound stator (I believe the weight includes the stator and the assembly needed to transport it) moved past Glassy Mountain on Hwy 11 around 9am this morning. From my count it has a total of 288 wheels on each of the two sections that support the stator (not counting the trucks on each end). Each wheel you see in the photo is part of a 4 wheel assembly that looks like an aircraft landing gear wheel, with 144 wheels on each side. Sorry the quality of the photo is poor but it was cloudy and dreary.
