In 2017 Van der Vlist was appointed for the transport of in total 26 wind turbines to the project site of Windpark Krammer. The transport is currently close to completion and counts near to 2600 trips in total, which took place almost daily.
The 1250 concrete tower segments have been transported per barge from the manufacturer in Germany, to the Van der Vlist Terminal in Moerdijk. The segments were unloaded using our 84 m/t hydraulic mobile harbor crane and placed in storage on our Moerdijk premises. The segments were held in storage until they were requested for build-up at the Krammer Windpark. The final part of the transport took place by road.
The rotor blades were transported in pieces, directly from the cities Magdeburg and Aurich in Germany. The rotation of the blades has a diameter of 115,7 and the entire length of the assembled blade is 55.9m. This transport was completely executed by road and the blades were finally assembled on location.
180 meters tall
Each wind turbine consists out of app. 65 large segments in total. The concrete tower, rotor blades and remaining parts give the wind turbine a total height of 180 meter. After delivery, all the pieces of the puzzle are put together and the wind turbine is ready to deliver 3 MW energy.
Van der Vlist is looking back on a remarkable project and is very proud to have been a part of this exclusive wind energy development in the Netherlands.
