GE Selects Port Of Wilmington For Wind Turbine Blade Shipments


GE's wind energy division has selected the Port of Wilmington, Del., as its port of entry for several large shipments of wind turbine blades. M/V Industrial Freedom is the first of four vessels that are scheduled to discharge a total of 264 blades in Wilmington through early December. The 132-foot-long blades will be distributed to land-based wind farms in the mid-Atlantic region.

‘Our terminal facilities, location, transportation infrastructure and, most important, our experienced and high-skilled workforce provide GE and their project customers with an efficient and safe distribution solution for these large, fragile and high-value wind turbine blades,’ says Gene Bailey, executive director of Diamond State Port Corp.
