Hutchinson Engineering Ltd has sent out seven sets of root & tip blade frames ordered for the MHI Vestas V164 turbine blade global deployment programme.

The sets were loaded onto MV Ingeborg and sent to Denmark from Hutchinson’s new quayside facility alongside Garston Dock on the River Mersey last Thursday, 6 July. This was Hutchinson’s first load-out from Garston Dock.

Last Thursday the MV Ingeborg set sail to Denmark with 7 sets of Root & Tip Blade frames ordered for the MHI Vestas V164 Turbine Blade global deployment programme.

These 6m x 4m units weighing up to 25te were fabricated, finally assembled with components also manufactured at the nearby Widnes plant.

The project included on site shot blast and painting at Hutchinson’s new facility.

This was the first load out from Hutchinson’s new facility only metres from the heavy duty quay which augments their current renewable capability with direct large item delivery now possible.

“This project is the first of many larger fabrications for our clients. This is now our fourth order from MHI Vestas and largest to date …..we can now offer our customers a full service from one of our four production facilities …our continued investment and collaboration with ABP & Armitt at Garston will bring much needed employment opportunities to the area and increased export potential from the Merseyside area,“ Dean Drinkwater, Hutchinson’s Managing Director, said.
