Blades shipped in Aalborg

Siemens Gamesa contracted Mammoet to transport three 94 m-long wind turbine blades from a storage area at its manufacturing plant in Aalborg, Denmark, to the nearby quayside. 

A customised trailer consisting of 2x6 Nicolas MDEL axle lines, combined with a four-axle tractor, was used to complete the 1 km journey to a waiting vessel. 

The total length of the new trailer combination and blade measured more than 100 m. The trailer was built using conventional axle lines at the Mammoet yard in Brande, before being transported in one piece to the storage area in Aalborg.
