Last turbine for the DMO project in Drenthe

As of August 2020, we have transported a total of 45 complete wind turbines, divided into 540 special transports. Each turbine consisted of six tower sections. The larger tower parts were shipped by barge from Emden to Haren. In total, 92 river barges were used. The largest tower section has a diameter of 5 meters. The road transport from Haren to Drentse Monden and Oostermoer was very challenging. Because of the transport height of 5.30 meters, it was often necessary to take a shortcut in order to avoid viaducts. In addition, a bypass was constructed in Germany to avoid a roundabout, the engineering of which was carried out in-house. In the Netherlands, the roundabouts were modified so that we could take them through the middle. The wings arrived by ship at our terminal in Moerdijk. This project was a collaboration between our departments Van der Vlist Projecten B.V., Van der Vlist Terminal Moerdijk B.V. and Van der Vlist Modulair Transport B.V.
