Components for wind turbines destined for First Wind's Bull Hill wind project in Hancock County arrived at Mack Point in Searsport yesterday.
Workers at the port were unloading the components, which came from Denmark, onto flatbed trucks and then moved them to storage at the port, according to the Bangor Daily News. They'll remain at the facility until the blades from Colorado arrive, at which point all components will be shipped to the wind farm site.
The Land Use Regulation Commission in October approved the $76 million, 19-turbine wind farm near Eastbrook. The wind farm is expected to generate about 34 megawatts of power, or enough electricity to power 18,000 homes.
