Bugger me.

I lived for 20 years just about 300mtrs from that thing and I never knew what it was!

In case anyone is interested - how to install a MHIV V164 turbine on Aberdeen Bay ...

https://youtu.be/KjIVUzyhiXU

Should take about 16hrs
Am I right in saying the V164 is the biggest blade in production?

"Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has shared a timelapse video of the jack-up vessel Bold Tern installing an MHI Vestas V164-8.0 MW wind turbine on a suction bucket jacket foundation at the Borkum Riffgrund 2 wind farm in the German North Sea.

The 450MW wind farm comprises a total of 56 MHI Vestas turbines currently being installed on 36 monopile foundations and 20 suction bucket jackets. Last week, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier reported that 44 turbines had been put in place at the site some 57km off the north-west coast of Germany.

Earlier this month, the wind farm delivered first power to the grid. Ørsted, the developer of the project, plans to commission all of the turbines by the end of the year.

There's a lovely example of the type called "Lulworth" which seems to have been abandoned at Bizerte in Tunisia. We sailed in earlier in the year and were struck by this magnificent classic which sadly, on closer inspection, has clearly been left to her own devices. The sun is taking it's toll on varnish, but overall she seems in very good shape and could be fabulous again for someone with deep pockets. I googled her and she won an award not that long ago for best classic restoration. Such a shame to see her slip away yet again.

This yacht is very similar to the old gaff rigged yawl that I sailed in the 1960's which was "Duet" designed by Linton Hope in 1912 and at the time was (1960's) was loaned to the Ocean Youth Club by Chris Courtauld. I see it's still going and is based in Ipswich and run by the Cirdan Sailing Trust. When built the Yacht carried the name "Gaviota" and when bought by Augustine Courtauld it was renamed "Duet".
