Crowley delivers six new turbine blades to Costa Rican wind farm

November 10 - Crowley Maritime Corporation's liner services group recently shipped six oversized wind turbine blades from Port Everglades, USA to Limon, Costa Rica.

The blades, which weighed 2.5 tons (2.2 tonnes) each and were 72 feet (21.9 m) long (pictured below), were lifted onboard Crowley's Stadt Emden, using gantry cranes, slings and hooks, and transported to Costa Rica in time to meet the shipper's tight deadline.

With a project solutions team, including project management professionals, engineers, naval architects and logistics experts, and specialised equipment such as ships, tugboats, flat-deck barges and jack-up barges, Crowley says it is ideally suited to serve the renewable energy companies with their projects.
