LM Blade ORE CatapultOne of the world’s longest offshore wind turbine blades has arrived at the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult’s testing facilities in Blyth, Northumberland.

The 88.4-metre LM Wind Power blade will be put through its paces at ORE Catapult’s 100 metre blade-test facility over the coming months. The blade has been developed as part of XL-Blade, an EU Demowind-funded project that aims to reduce the cost of offshore wind by designing, validating and deploying the world’s largest offshore wind turbine blade.
