1. Anet at pier 28 soon after arriving on Tuesday.
2 and 3 Rail cars in the Rockingham yard (Atlantic Companion in the background)
4. The last cruise ship of the season, Emerald Princess, in the background, with three more blades on rail cars in the "downtown" ocean terminals yard.
The blades appear to be too big to wiggle in through the ship's hatches, so may be loaded on deck, using the special frames to stack them. The blades seem to be about 120 feet long.
Seaforth Energy Inc of Halifax is a local builder of wind turbines, and sub-contracts blade construction to DSTN's Trenton, NS, plant called DSME.
In fact Anet DID NOT load the blades - she took a bulk cargo of grain or wood pellets- the blades remain in port-likely to be loaded on Saudi Hofuf due on the weekend of November 9-11.
