Business Profile

Business Challenge

  • As part of a project for 22 wind turbines, EWT needed wind turbines picked up in Campbeltown, Scotland before loading them on a vessel, shipping them to a port that had no cranes, and discharging the towers in matching sets for easy load out to the final jobsite.

Logistics Plus® Solution

  • Logistics Plus worked with CS Wind to find storage locations for all of the turbine units while working with the vessel owner, trucking company, and stevedores to develop a feasible plan for the successful delivery of the turbines.

Results

  • All tower sections of the turbines were successfully loaded in a way that minimum repositioning was required in Antwerp and in the final discharge. This project, under the supervision of the Logistics Plus Belgium and Turkey project managers, was made possible and executed in such a way that sections of each set of turbines could be stored together, thus avoiding future repositioning costs and crane waiting time.
