Collett & Sons bolsters wind turbine capabilities

July 6 - Collett & Sons Ltd. has bought the wind turbine transport division of MDF Transport based in Great Yarmouth, UK.

The deal sees Collett Transport taking ownership of the specialist vehicle and trailer fleet of MDF and moves the project operations in-house with their current projects team at its port and heavy lift storage depot at Goole, UK. 

David Collett, Managing director of Collett & Sons, says; "We see this as a strategic move to both bolster our current wind turbine transport fleet and add value to the wind energy market. We now have a greater capacity and can use the expertise of our projects department, marine division and consulting services to build on the foundations that MDF started."

Managing director of MDF, Mark Farrow stated; "After much deliberation we recognise that there is serious investment in equipment and resources required to operate in this market, so the decision was made to step forwards in this way and concentrate on our oil & gas exploration transport activities."

Collett is a specialist heavy transport and projects company and a member of Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) network. It offers turnkey solutions for delivery of wind turbine components on a global basis. Via the combined activities of its marine and transport divisions, it can manage large scale wind farm projects such as the latest order received for Gordon Bush wind farm consisting of 35 turbines in the Scottish Highlands.
