BLADE

An iconic symbol of a regenerating city

Artist Nayan Kulkarni’s ambitious installation was one of the iconic events of the City of Culture year – a celebration of a brighter future for Hull. Bringing a 75m, 28 tonne turbine blade into the centre of a busy city was a real challenge!

Chris handled the logistics for the event, leading the team responsible for transporting the blade from the Siemens plant in East Hull, to Queen Victoria Square. Getting the blade through the city at night and in secret was a huge team effort requiring the temporary removal of dozens of items of street furniture, including traffic lights, street lighting and barriers.

Chris led the multi-disciplinary team including engineers, fabricators, police, transport & lifting specialists and traffic managers, who worked overnight to minimise disruption and maximise the impact of the finished piece.
