 On the second leg of my ‘offshore wind’ tour of Spain, I took in the Aviles site of Windar.

In the picture below we see some lovely yellow TP’s (Transition Pieces) ready for upending and fixing of the External Working Platforms.

Empire Projects in Europe

In the second photo a collection of finished and almost complete Baltic Eagle TPs, with Wood Thilsted’s Neha Patel included for a sense of scale….

….. For those that don’t know Neha, she’s a towering 6ft2!

Many thanks to José Carlos, Franc Villaz and the Windar team for hosting myself and the Scottish Power EA Hub team.

If you missed the first instalment of this trip, you can catch it here in my blog.
