Blue Water Shipping has transported two moulds for wind turbine blades from Aalborg, Denmark, to Le Havre in France for Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy’s (SGRE) new factory.
In addition to the sea transport, the project included transfer of cargoes from SGRE’s warehouse in Aalborg to the loading quay, loading onboard the vessels in Aalborg and discharging in Le Havre.
The moulds consisted of four parts that measured 76.3 m x 6.32 m x 3.85 m and weighed 56 tonnes, and four parts that measured 82.7 m x 7.4 m x 4.73 m and weighed 60 tonnes. Along with the moulds, 92 support parts were transported, which will be used in connection with the blade production.
The cargo was shipped in three lots. The first shipment departed onboard the vessel Miena Desgagnés at the beginning of December 2021. The following shipments were transported onboard Symphony Space during January 2022.
