The Wind on the Tyne.
The river Tyne has a long history of industrial development and in the past shipbuilding and coal played an important part in that history.
But recently another industry has started to make its mark on this river- wind power.
Here are pictures taken on the 01/04/2017 which show the ship the Sea Installer berthed at Swans, which is designed to install wind turbines at sea, and images of a series of large wind turbines being constructed at Shepherd Offshore.
