The Netherlands-based haulier Van der Vlist was on hand to deliver the first wind turbine blades for the Windplan Blauw wind farm.

Van der vlist 70 m blade raod haul

The Windplan Blauw project will see 74 existing turbines replaced by 61 larger units. The first 70 m-long V162 wind turbine blades were transported to the Flevopolder by Van der Vlist. The trailer combination measured 93 m in length.

Windplan Blauw is a hybrid wind farm comprising onshore and offshore units. The offshore part of the wind farm is located in a lake, which makes it hard to reach for installation vessels because of shallow waters.
