Blyth foundations take shape image

Upper steel shafts have been lifted onto four out of five of the gravity base foundations for EDF's 41.5MW Blyth demonstration wind farm off Northumberland.

EDF shared a photo of the work progressing on social media, saying welding work would soon begin to join the lower and upper sections of the so-called float and submerge structures

The foundations are being assembled at the Neptune dry dock on the river Tyne in Newcastle.

Each foundation will support an MHI Vestas 8.3MW turbine.
