#WindFarm - Blades for a wind-farm in the Irish Sea have begun to arrive in Belfast Harbour reports ReNews.

The blades are for the MHI Vestas V164 8MW turbines destined for Dong Energy’s 256MW Burbo 2 offshore wind-farm in the Irish Sea.

The 80-metre blades for the 32 machines have been manufactured at MHI Vestas's factory on the Isle of Wight.

The turbines will be loaded out in September by A2Sea.

Bladt Industries and EEW are responsible for the project’s foundations, which are currently being installed by Dutch company Van Oord.
