Complete transport solution for wind farm scale up

Van der Vlist was requested to arrange the transport of four wind turbines with a hub height of 100 metres, needed for increasing the capacity at the Battenoert wind farm in the Netherlands. Van der Vlist offered a complete transport solution for all parts: everything from the 50 metre long blades that were transported by super wing carriers, the nacelle, hub and tower sections as well as ancillary parts that were moved on standard trailers.

There were also 92 concrete segments that were delivered using four barges. The barges were placed alongside the Van der Vlist quay where the segments were then transshipped with the aid of the mobile port crane being present. The close proximity of the Van der Vlist Terminal at Moerdijk to that of the wind farm allowed for a combined road and river solution that was both cost effective and environmentally friendly.

The expected annual production after scaling-up will be approximately 40 million kWh, four times higher than previous and sufficient for the electricity consumption of 11,000 households.
