Van der Vlist Starts Turbine Blade Transport for Windplan Blauw

A new wind farm project is being developed under the name Windplan Blauw.



Windplan Blauw is a repowering and redevelopment project in the north-western part of Flevoland province. 74 wind turbines are being replaced by 61 new, more powerful 4 MW turbines. The total rated capacity of the future wind farm will be 250MW, four times higher than the previous total capacity!


Vattenfall and SwifterwinT, a cooperation between over 150 businesses, citizens and turbine owners from the project area, are developing the project under the name Windplanblauw.



A total of 37 Vestas wind turbines, type V162-5.6 MW, will be installed on land replacing 46 old wind turbines.



The first V162 wind blades were transported to the Flevopolder by Van der Vlist. A special road transport with a total transport length of 93 metres each! From the harbour in Amsterdam the transport left, under escort, for the northwest corner of Flevoland.



To transport these wind blades, Van der Vlist uses a dolly system that can carry wind blades of 70 metres and more.



For wind turbine projects, Van der Vlist has project and site managers who advise from the preliminary stages on logistics, feasibility studies and engineering, among other things, ensuring that the project runs smoothly from start to finish.
