Mammoet wins wind contract

deugro has contracted Mammoet to transport 37 wind turbines to the Badgingarra wind farm, located 185 km north of Perth, Western Australia.

 

The 3.6 MW wind turbines will travel 270 km from the Australian Marine Complex to the project site.

The blades measure 63 m in length and, according to Mammoet, they will be the longest cargo to be transported out of the Perth metro area.

Only one blade can be transported per weeknight and road civil modifications have been made at seven locations to ensure safe passage through to the project site.

The 130 MW Badgingarra wind farm is scheduled to come online in early 2019.
