Siemens is getting behind the Hull UK City of Culture programme by backing a major artwork that has been installed into the heart of the city. Siemens is backing the installation of 'Blade' by multi-media artist Nayan Kulkarni, who has reinterpreted a 75m long wind turbine blade as a monumental sculpture installed across the historic Queen Victoria Square.
The first turbine components have been dispatched by sea from Siemens’ new offshore wind power facilities in Hull. The Sea Challenger, a jack-up ship specially designed for installing offshore wind turbines, set sail with towers, blades and nacelles from the newly-constructed harbour at the Siemens site in Hull, signalling the start of the first project for the new facility.
