  • Building Bridges with Recycled Wind-Turbine Blades

    Building Bridges with Recycled Wind-Turbine Blades

    UCC researchers are behind the construction of a striking new 'blade bridge' that crosses the soon-to-be-opened greenway between Youghal and Midleton, Co. Cork. The bridge is just the second of its kind in the world.  The blades used in the project were decommissioned from a wind farm in Belfast avoiding nearly 800 kilograms of CO2 emissions that would have occurred if steel girders had been used. Re-Wind, the research network that spearheaded the project, is a collaboration between the MaREI research centre, UCC, and partners in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and the United States.
