Wind Turbine blades arrive in Canada

Last night the three blades for the Grouse Mountain Wind Turbine reached Canada via the Fraser Surrey Docks. These massive 37 metre long blades travelled by freighter for six weeks starting in Denmark. It looked as if everyone was surprised by how big they really are. Today, the blades were carefully unloaded from the freighter and placed directly onto a barge. The blades are now sitting side by side on the same barge while they get equipped with the proper supports to allow them to be air-lifted to the Peak of Grouse Mountain in the coming week. But, we’ll have to wait for a nice clear and calm day for this part of the journey.
