A giant wind turbine blade made by LM Wind Power has arrived at the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult test site in Blyth, north-east England.

The 88.4-metre blade will be put through its paces over the coming months at the 100-metre test facility. 

LM Wind has developed the structure as part of XL-Blade, an EU Demowind-funded initiative.

The project aims to reduce the cost of offshore wind by designing, validating and deploying the world’s largest offshore wind turbine blade, ORE Catapult said.
