With a total of 168 wind turbine blades on board of the semisubmersible vessel MV Sun Rise, SAL sets a new record.
Despite of facing adverse weather conditions on site in China because of a typhoon and local Covid-19 restrictions, the vessel was finally able to sail from Dongzao, China towards Antwerp, Belgium where 30 of the blades will be offloaded by end of September.
The remaining 138 blades will be discharged at Gdynia port, Poland.
Each blade measures about 55 m in length and weighs 9.6 t.
