Blade Runner

A major windmill project in Amherst, NS is the destination for another load of windmill blades. The first load arrived August 13 on SE Veridian [see Armchair Captain]
Today's load arrived on fleetmate SE Potentia a Singapore registered vessel of 9627 gross tons, built in 2009. This time there were not as many blades on deck, but no doubt the hold is full.
1. The tug Atlantic Larch approaches SE Potentia in the Middle Ground to help the ship back in to pier 31. This will allow the blades to be removed without being blocked by the ship's cranes.2. The problem with wind turbines (and sailing yachts too) - what happens when there is no wind?
