Poland’s second largest turbine blades delivery at BCT
A total of 111 Vestas wind turbine blades have reached the Polish Port of Gdynia’s Baltic Container Terminal (BCT). Delivered onboard the semi submersible heavy lift vessel Sun Rise, formerly known as STX Rose 2, the blades are intended for delivery to a number of wind farms in Poland.
The Baltic Container Terminal informed in a brief post through its social media channels that this was the second largest one-off delivery of wind turbine blades at the facility. The company is handling the unloading of the 169 metre long and 40 metre wide vessel for Morska Agencja Gdynia. The conclusion of the operation is scheduled for the late hours of October 22.
Morska Agencja Gdynia is participating in a number of wind projects in Poland as a transhipment specialist. Since 2007, the company has created hubs in the ports of Gdynia and Świnoujście to serve the wind sector.
The delivery of the 111 wind turbine blades follows a recent delivery of 66 Vestas blades completed by the Tian Shou. It was only second to the delivery of 114 wind turbine blades in February this year when the 190 metre long Tian XI reached the Port of Gdynia.
