|Leaving Cowes with wind turbine blades. 11:13hrs, 16/9/05
This vessel is specifically designed to carry wind turbine blades from the Vestas factory at Newport, to Southampton. There, many are transferred onto larger vessels. Loading is done with a crane that straddles the vessel moored in a specially built dock.
