First rotor delivered to Avonmouth
The first low-pressure (LP) rotor, which will form part of the world’s largest turbine, was safely delivered into the docks at Avonmouth at the beginning of November. The 13m x 5m rotor arrived from General Electric’s Belfort facility in France, via Rotterdam into Avonmouth where it will be stored until installed at HPC. There are three LP rotors per turbine which are key components of the power production equipment in the Turbine Hall. Once operational, the two turbines at HPC will produce low-carbon electricity for six million homes.
