Operating out of the 130,000 sq ft (12,077.4 sq m) warehouse in Houston, Hellmann will manage the time-critical supply of spare parts and components for Vestas’ existing and new wind farms across the USA and Canada. This includes small-scale parts such as electronic components, hazardous material as well as large turbine components.

Volker Sauerborn, chief operating officer, contract logistics at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, said: “Thanks to our very successful track record, we are pleased to strengthen our market position in renewable energy logistics in North America by partnering with Vestas. As a company with a strong focus on sustainability, our goal is to expand this business segment on a global scale in the coming years.”

Hellmann established its renewable logistics division over a decade ago. In addition to contract logistics services, a network of regional control towers situated in major markets (Shanghai, Rotterdam and Miami) provides a one-stop shop for utility-scale projects around the globe.
