SAL Ships Blades & Nacelles to Akita

600 1640716537839The first shipment of nacelles and blades for the 140 MW Akita Noshiro offshore wind farm have reached Akita Port in Japan.

The SAL ship carrying 17 nacelles and 30 blades arrived from the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark to Akita Port this week.

Vestas has currently manufactured all the blades, nacelles and most of the tower sections for Akita Offshore Wind Corporation’s Akita Noshiro Offshore Wind Farm Project. The project will be Japan’s first utility-scale offshore wind farm, with Vestas installing all 33 of the project’s V117-4.2 MW™ wind turbines. Delivery of the components is expected to arrive at Akita Port this month.

The construction team will apply a “plug and play” approach to the installation of the wind turbines. This will begin at the pre-assembly area of Akita Port where full assembly, including internals of the towers, preparation of the blades, and a final power test of the nacelles, will be performed.

Requiring precision and efficiency, this key stage of pre-assembly, in ideal condition, will allow for five streamlined crane lifts during the offshore installation for each turbine. This will involve all turbine components, including the blades. Mobilization of the pre-assembly area at Akita Port already commenced in November of this year.
