Blades arrive in Wilmington

GT USA Wilmington has handled 39 wind turbine blades at its Delaware terminal on behalf of GE Renewable Energy.

Each blade was manufactured in Brazil, measured over 200 ft (60 m) in length and weighed 13.5 tons (12.2 tonnes). They were shipped to the port of Wilmington on board the BBC Chartering vessel, BBC Topaz. GT USA Wilmington said these were the largest blades it had ever received.

Delaware-based American Transport Systems provided specialised blade trailers with steerable rear axles to transport the blades to their final destination at the Beech Ridge II wind farm in West Virginia.

A second BBC Chartering vessel will arrive at the port later in August to deliver a further fifteen 62.2 m blades.
