Van der Vlist handles wind turbines 

Van der Vlist is currently transporting 11 wind turbines for Windpark Deil in the Netherlands, on behalf of Vestas. 

Each wind turbine consists of 12 components. The nacelles, drivetrains and hubs are being transported from Denmark to the project site by road. Due to the length of the blades (67 m each) and the diameter of the tower sections (4.5 m), these components are being shipped from Denmark to a local port before they are transported by road to the project site. 

Once erected, the wind turbines will measure 207 m tall and have a rotor diameter of 136 m.
