Video: Turbine blades arrive at Belfast Harbour for new state-of-art wind farm


The world's most powerful wind turbine blades have arrived in Belfast Harbour as part of a project to build an offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea.

The blades - and their 88m high towers - can be seen from across much of the city. They were manufactured in the UK by MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.

The first six massive 80m long blades - the length of nine double decker buses - have arrived in Belfast Harbour's offshore wind terminal from the Isle of Wight and the completed wind farm will provide enough power for 230,000 homes.
