Port of Vancouver USA Receives Longest Wind Blades Ever To Enter The West Coast of US

The Port of Vancouver USA received a shipment of wind turbine components on July 22 that included the longest wind turbine blades ever to enter the West Coast of the U.S. and transported across North America, to-date. The delivery is a joint effort between the turbine manufacturer Goldwind Americas and the wind project owner Potentia Renewables.

The port received a total of nine wind turbines including blades, nacelles, generators, hubs, tower sections and other sub-components:
