The world’s longest wind turbine blades

Three of the world’s longest wind turbine blades have been transported by Blue Water

The blades which were produced by LM Wind Power, are 88.4 metres long and the total weight of each blade is approximately 34 tons. It is the first time ever that blades of this length have been transported by sea.

Blue Water chartered the open deck carrier M/V “Meri” from Meriaura Ltd for the voyage between Esbjerg and Bremerhaven and executed the loading operation in Esbjerg. The discharging operation was executed in our newly formed JV BluewaterBREB, which was a complex twin-lift operation with two floating cranes operating as one unit to place the blades on a specific quay with shallow water. The entire operation was executed under time pressure and stormy weather within the customers deadline.
