Belfast Harbour's £50m Dong deal

In the past week, the first of the massive wind turbines which were assembled in Belfast have begun to generate electricity in the Irish Sea.

Blades on four of the structures are now turning and in total 42 have already been installed at the West of Duddon Sands offshore wind farm, which is being developed by Danish firm Dong Energy and Scottish Power Renewables.

In its biggest development ever, Belfast Harbour is providing the first purpose-built port for the production of offshore wind farms in the UK, working for Dong projects in the Irish Sea in a £50m deal.

The 450-metre quay and 50-acre building space is sited on land reclaimed from the sea in 1960.
