The first three wind turbine blades made their way from Lerwick Port to the Viking Wind Farm in Shetland. Vestas, which is supplying the 103 wind turbines which make up the wind farm, is responsible for safely managing the process of getting the wind turbine blades and other components from their factories to Lerwick and then delivering them from there to the Viking site.
Erection of the first turbine sections at the Viking Wind Farm site is now underway. There are up to three convoys per day, 6 days a week (Mon – Sat) with up to four wind turbine components per convoy. Convoy travel time is estimated to be around 1 hour from leaving the port to entering the site. The wind turbine component convoys are expected to conclude in July at the latest.
