While installation had been delayed slightly by poor weather, the manufacturer said that it took advantage of a change in wind conditions overnight to get the blades up.

It took 12 people approximately three hours to fit each of the blades.

Once "additional work" on the turbine has been completed, it is expected to be commissioned in "the coming weeks".
