A massive nearly 350,000 pound "load disc" arrived in this crate from Germany Thursday at the Clemson University's Wind Turbine Drive Train Testing Facility at the former Navy Base. A 192-wheel transporter carried it slowly from a barge to the facility where it will become an integral part of a 15-megawatt (electricity for 6,000 homes) test unit for prototype wind turbine drive trains. The facility's 15-megawatt and its 7.5-megawatt units each will be the largest in the world. Wade Spees/Staff October 3, 2013
