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.
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!
