PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – The blades for the Block Island wind farm have arrived in Providence.
The 240-foot-long blades will be a part of the nation’s first offshore wind farm.
Deepwater Wind says workers began unloading the blades Tuesday.
The blades arrival comes as more milestones are reached in the wind farm’s construction, including cables being run from the offshore wind farm to the island and from the island to the mainland.
Cable connections between the wind turbines will be complete next month.
The blades themselves are scheduled to be brought to the wind farm site by boat sometime in early August.
