December 19 - Madrid based marine and cargo surveyors Eurotransport Solutions (ETS) has monitored the loading and securing of the first Vestas type V126 wind turbine blades onboard a vessel in Spain.

The blades - each of which were 62 m long - were loaded at the port of Motril, and are the largest ever loaded in Spain, claims ETS.

Elsewhere, after the implementation of two risk management programmes for solar plant projects in South Africa, ETS has been chosen to lead the 100 MW Xina Solar One project, which is being developed by Abengoa.
