Laso invests in wind blade transporter

In Portugal, Laso Transportes has taken delivery of equipment that will allow it to handle the transportation of wind turbine blades measuring up to 74 m in length.

The company, which is based in Venda do Pinheiro, says its Goldhofer wing transport device (FTV) promises to play a decisive role when transporting wind turbine blades on winding roads, tight corners or when significant gradients are involved.

The Goldhofer FTV allows users to rotate the components being transported or adjust the angle of tilt by up to 60 degrees.

João Pedro explains that the ever-increasing dimensions of wind energy components is presenting new challenges and difficulties to the companies that have to transport them.

He adds that safety issues during transport of these wind components is also an increasing concern and, for Laso, being able to comply with these challenges is an important factor.
