Ninety-four wind turbine blades destined for the first phase of the Meadow Lake Wind Farm in White and Benton counties, Ind., have arrived at the Port of Indana-Burns Harbor.

In addition to the Vestas-built blades, which measure 132 feet long and are 10 feet high by 6 feet wide, the shipment included 30 power generators and 30 turbine hubs. The Meadow Lake Wind Farm is owned by the Houston-based Horizon Wind Energy and could feature as many as 600 turbines upon full build-out.

An earlier shipment of turbine components for the Meadow Lake Wind Farm arrived at the port June 1. That shipment contained 30 power generators and 30 turbine hubs, but no blades.
