The huge and functional Turbos Turbine made its first overbearing appearance at the ground on 8th September but will not be officially functional until the 15th September game with Counties-Manukau. Designed to support the Turbos on attack the 15 metre high turbine also comes with three rotating blades and the "Turbos" sound when the team is attacking the opposition's red zone.
The original turbine concept was suggested by the Green Power Committee in 2005 and has taken nearly three years to evolve and construct. Just a matter of months ago the project became reality when the turbine was gifted by the Palmerston North City Council to the Manawatu Rugby Union and with the goodwill of Stevensons Structural Engineers, Higgins, Silvester Clark, B&M Electrical, McIntosh Bros. Cranes and Capture Signs now becomes a very imposing reality for opposition teams.
Manawatu Rugby Union CEO - Hadyn Smith, has been surprised at the willingness of support for the project from all of those named and the way it has come together so quickly.
"Three months ago this was just one of the Turbo's marketing ideas and a plan on a bit of paper. Now with the help of the above commercial partners it's yet another pretty impressive achievement that has been put together in support of the Turbos.
Most people don't know that the power turbines around Palmerston North were the original catalyst for the name Turbos. To now build our own turbine at the home of the Turbos is just the icing on the cake and will add just one more piece to the provincial rugby landscape in the Manawatu. Mr Smith is looking forward to the feedback when it is fully functional on 15th September.
The Turbos Turbine is fully functional but its blade rotation and noise is completely controlled electronically by operational staff. Despite rumours to the contrary the stadium lights will not be powered by the turbine or the blades increase their rotation when the wind knots increase. Mr Smith pointed out that the rotation of the blades was engine powered only and will be braked when not in use.
The Turbos Turbine will indeed by the power behind the Manawatu Turbos team for 2007 and beyond.
