They turned off the engines, tightened the ropes to the cleats. The silence in the square of the Port that belonged to Tharros is ghostly. Close to the ships loaded with wind turbines, which have been dominating the horizon of the Gulf of Oristano since Monday morning, four "yellow helmets" are stationed, leaning almost in contemplation towards those "wind giants". Nothing moves in the face of the invasion moored on the head quay of the port destined first for grain and oil extracts, then for gas and now for wind turbines.

Desert at the Port

No one showed up at the entrance to the “wind” pier to claim that mountain of cyclopean propellers destined to gut roads and ridges, landscapes and sunsets. The suspects remained covered. The papers are all wrapped up in the ministerial bureaucracy building, waiting for a green light that has not yet arrived. In the meanders of the projects, however, we can see the coordinates of the invasion, as if it were an assault map for the Sardinian landscape fort.

The colonizers

Everyone or almost everyone is there, from Saras to Sorgenia, from Enel to Jp Morgan. Most of the oil giants, from Erg to Repsol, from the Spanish of Acciona to the multi-brand Germans. The cards speak clearly: landing in Oristano. The plan is drawn up down to the smallest detail with a stronghold in the heart of western Sardinia: a narrow-gauge port, capable, however, of irradiating those wind turbines in all the main directions of the assault on Sardinian land. As if they had all agreed, the docking point is that of Oristano. They have planned it in the road maps of dozens of wind farms planned in every corner of the island, from north to south, up to the side of the Ogliastra hinterland.

Oristano “caput” wind power

The ships arriving in the port near the Santa Giusta lagoon in this case are only the first step in a scenario destined to overturn the landscape of Sardinia, to scar horizons and the environment forever. There are at least two clues as to the destination of these shovels. The first is that of the manufacturer of the wind turbines: Vestas Wind Systems. The operational base is in Denmark, but it has factories halfway around the world, including Spain. The second clue is the origin of the main ship, the one "registered" "Madeira", Portuguese flag, but arriving from the port of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. A port that is not exactly Spanish, except on a national level. It is from that "small rock" close to Morocco, in front of Western Sahara, on the West African side, that those turbines took off towards Sardinia. Two elements, Vestas and Spain, which could suggest two distinct or converging paths: the shovels are destined for Spanish-based projects on Sardinian soil, or Vestas, through the plans of the Iberian companies in Sardinia, has decided to start well in advance position its own storage center on the island also taking into account the transport and production times of these "giants" of the wind. The hypothesis of a "wind" logistics base in the Oristano airport has been put in black and white by all the giants who have presented projects in every corner of Sardinia. Leaving the port of Oristano, for these newly arrived shovels, will not be an easy task. It will not be enough for him to place a "special transport" sign in the front and rear tread machines. The road transport plans of the wind power giants, indicated in the projects, and which we are publishing, are of a "military landing", with devastation of road routes, elimination of roundabouts, excavation of embankments, elimination of electrical networks, cancellation of all vertical signs, decapitation of trees and all kinds of vegetation. Not only that, they will enter, or rather would like to enter, the inhabited centers of the small towns of Sardinia, distorting roads and demolishing any obstacle that stands in the way of the transit of those wind turbines with a length exceeding one hundred and fifty metres.

Santa Giusta off limits

In this case, for these "colossi", it will also be impossible to leave Oristano. The designers almost all relied on a transport company "fished" from the other side of Italy, in Guardiaregia, Campobasso, in Molise. The picture of the demolitions to leave Oristano is presented with the "simplicity" of someone who is not used to knocking on other people's houses. Imagine if "the lords of the wind" have trouble getting out of the port of Oristano.

Bulldozers & chainsaws

The "invasion plan" aims to overcome the first obstacle with bulldozer blows: « at the exit from the industrial area of Oristano, at the junction for the SS 131, the transit of special convoys imposes the need to implement the following temporary interventions at a roundabout: removal of vertical signs; temporary removal of n. 3 traffic islands, road leveling necessary for the entire transport phase of the wind turbine components to the project site". The transport, however, will not last a few days: «in the transitional period (when transport needs do not require it) the traffic islands and the removed signs will be restored through temporary installations and mobile removals » .

Safe mode

In other words, the road system will remain temporary forever, given that the "wind power landing" is just about to begin. Of course, according to the plans, they will not only pass through the state roads, where the State Anas will make every effort to encourage the invasion, but it will not be as easy to pass through the inhabited centres, both in the cities and in the towns, distorting roads, cutting the electricity aerial electricity and razing "disturbing" vegetation to the ground. The last barrier to this "demolishing invasion", planned by the new "wind raiders", could be the Mayors' ordinances on roads. Nowhere is it written that inhabited centers should be turned upside down with bulldozers and chainsaws. One thing, however, is certain: when they start dismantling roads and towns, it will be too late. The invasion must be stopped first and without wasting any more time.
