Siemens Gamesa has awarded Laso Transportes a contract to handle the international transport of wind turbine blades from its factory in Vagos, Portugal.

According to Laso, over the next two years more than 1,500 wind turbine blades will be manufactured at the facility, which is located in the district of Aveiro. The blades can measure up to 84 m in length. 

Recently, Laso handled its first shipment of blades from the Vagos factory for the Herrera wind farm in Burgos, Spain. For this project, the blades measured 72 m long.
