February 10 - Lysander Shipping has arranged the import and delivery of a large wind turbine nacelle from Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea to the NAREC testing facility in Blyth.

The shipment consisted of a number of units, the largest of which weighed 293 tonnes and had the dimensions 16.5 m x 7 m x 7 m.

Due to the weight of the cargo, the Port of Blyth was required to reinforce an area of the quayside to accommodate the load.

The cargo was offloaded using the vessel's crane directly onto an SPMT, before being delivered to the local testing facility.
