Daryl O’Flaherty

Daryl is an oversized pilot who leads the way for trucks transporting the enormous components that wind farms require – 40m long blades and enormous wind tower sections. He is based in Hamilton, and has been working with wind farm components for 20 years. Work is beginning to dry up now as energy companies put projects on hold due to political uncertainty, and that bothers Daryl.  He thinks a lot of young people wouldn’t have had work opportunities without wind farms.
