Transport and handling of wind turbine units

The first transports of wind turbine units from the Stork site in the Port of Antwerp took place in June. One of our clients builds the units on site, after which they’re put on a flatbed and driven to the wharf nearby. From there, they are sent via pontoon to Hoboken for further assembly and processing. A total of 58 units will be transported.

Successful collaboration

Each unit is 12 meters high and weighs around 15 tons. Our colleagues from Industrial Projects (Heavy) were recruited to handle the transport on the flatbed, and colleagues from Lashing & Securing (Pasec Port) helped secure the cargo. All in all, a successful collaborative effort between different divisions!

Inland navigation gaining in importance

Gosselin often transports crates for the moving division from Deurne to the Left Bank and vice versa; since both storage areas are located on the same side of the water, the idea arose to arrange this part of the transport by inland navigation. Up to now, this has resulted in 82 fewer trucks on the roads around Antwerp and an appealing reduction in CO2 emissions.
