The four anode cages and transition pieces were loaded on to a barge at Bladt's facilities in Aalborg, Denmark.

The loadout took approximately 16 hours, Bladt said. Before arriving at Aalborg, the barge visited Rostock in northern Germany to pick up four monopiles on to which the transition pieces will be attached.

Construction of 330MW Gode Wind 1 and 252MW Gode Wind 2 is expected to start in the German North Sea shortly. The projects are due to go online in 2016.

Anode cages are structures that surround the foundation in order to protect against corrosion.
