This afternoon the BBC Emerald, a heavy lift vessel from the BBC fleet arrived in Pictou. And this week, ship and ground crew will begin preparations to transport both turbine 2 and its subsea base from the shipyard there to Saint John.

This operation is part of our work to replace a series of fastening components from inside the devices. Once in Saint John, the BBC Emerald has a deck cargo capacity that will enable us to undertake the repair work on turbine 1.
