Van Der Vlist Complete their Geefsweer and Oosterhorn Windfarms Project
Last week Van Der Vlist delivered the last parts of the 32 towers in the two windfarms. With 12 parts per tower, this makes a total of 384 exceptional transports. The loading locations were in Eemshaven (NL), Esbjerg (DK), Lauchhammer (DE), to be unloaded at the two windfarms situated South East of the Port of Delfzijl
As the tower sections had a diameter of 5m it was therefore decided to have them shipped to Eemshaven. The large diameter of the tower sections made the transport height too high to drive under the high-voltage cables. Precautions were therefore taken such as, in this case, a tow chain (earth cable).
The locations were difficult to reach because of poor ground conditions. Despite these difficult circumstances, it was a good project with all transports completed without any noteworthy incidents.
