Second Beatrice turbine with blade safely attached

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.

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.

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 !!!!!!!!!
