Wagenborg busy with wind shipments

Wagenborg Shipping Sweden has transported wind turbine components from Terneuzen in the Netherlands to Piteå in Sweden on behalf of General Electric (GE).

The shipments will form part of the Markbygden wind farm project. Upon completion, the wind farm will feature over 1,100 wind turbines.

As part of the contract, a total of 60 nacelles and 60 hubs have to be shipped over a period of 11 weeks. Each nacelle weighs over 100 tons (90.7 tonnes) and each hub over 37 tons (33.6 tonnes).

In addition to the hubs and nacelles, Wagenborg will transport at least 60 trailers, three crawler cranes and multiple mobile cranes, as well as other construction equipment.

According to Wagenborg, all GE components are built in Germany and either trucked or barged to Terneuzen where they are being loaded onto the ro-ro vessels Balticborg and Bothniaborg.

In cooperation with GE, Bolk Transport, Wagenborg Nedlift and Niestern Sander, the nacelles are loaded on to specially-built platforms which are secured onto trailers for loading aboard the vessels, which are operated by Wagenborg Shipping Sweden.
