NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - The largest shipment of wind turbines sent to Rhode Island arrived from Germany at the Port of Davisville earlier this week.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1rHg4sF ) a ship carrying 10 turbines docked at the Quonset Business Park port on Tuesday and its haul was in the process of being unloaded on Wednesday.

The turbines came in pieces - three tower sections for each turbine and a nacelle that holds the generator. North Kingstown-based Wind Energy Development has been tasked with installing the turbines at various locations across the state.

Each of the direct-drive turbines were made by Vensys, a German company that says it has over 12,000 of its turbines installed around the world. They are all rated at 1.5 megawatts and stand 414 feet tall.
