Second Beatrice turbine with blade safely attached

Second Beatrice turbine with blade safely attached

Date Added: 13 June 2007 Contributor: Alan Whiteford Year: 2007 Picture No: 1893

This is the second of two wind turbines being assembled at Nigg to be installed offshore in the Beatrice field by Talisman Energy.

The first (picture #1752) was successfully installed in the autumn of 2006, but this one, so we hear, suffered damage to the blades during the assembly, and it's taken 9 months to sort out.

Groups: Offshore Wind Turbines for the Beatrice Field


Rambiz should be arriving on the 26 June and taking the turbine out on the 1-2 July.

The damaged blade only took a few weeks to repair, the hold-up was that the vessel taking the windmill was contracted out for other work, and because of the delay, could not install the windmill. Comment left on 21 June 2007 at 21:34 by Billy Winton
I'm sure this windmill will be on the move in no time now that Ciaran has a one year placement with Talisman for his 3rd year at University !!!!!!!!! Comment left on 02 July 2007 at 14:00 by Ann Hill
