UK-headquartered transport engineering company Collett & Sons has delivered 128 oversized components for the Inverclyde wind farm project in Scotland, UK.
The wind farm consists of eight Enercon E82 wind turbines, each featuring 39 m-long blades and 69 m-high towers. The Collett team mobilised two vehicles in convoy over a 22-day schedule to complete the deliveries from King George V Dock in Glasgow to the jobsite.
Utilising its triple extendable blade trailers, Collett moved the blades 20 miles (32.2 km) from port to site, covering a variety of motorways, dual carriageways and A-roads.
Once onsite, Collett had to navigate overhanging cables while ensuring each axle load had a maximum weight of 12 tonnes. Collett used its hydraulic modular trailers in a 3 x 4 configuration to move the bottom tower sections, which measured 4.3 m in diameter.
