Wind Energy Components

Over the past years, wind energy has advanced to one of the leading innovations to promote the delivery of clean, safe and environmentally sensitive energy.

SAL has been closely involved in the transport of windmill towers, turbines and blades mainly within Europe and to the Far East. Apart from the actual shipment of windmill units carriers have contributed to the design of necessary loading and stowage equipment to efficiently ship this type of cargo.

Quality, reliable and safe service is what SAL is standing for. By transporting the cargo for the projects “Walney Offshore Phase I” and “Ormonde Windfarm” SAL proved a fast and efficient performance.

REpower System AG commissioned SAL with the transportation of 30 (5MW) wind mills for the Ormonde Windfarm Project. The components, blades, hubs, nacelles and tower sections were loaded in different ports of Northern Germany to discharge in Belfast. 13 consecutive voyages were needed to fulfill this project.

For their Danish client DONG Energy SAL’s vessel MV “Annette” transported 51 monopiles from Germany to the UK. From March to June 2010, 11 consecutive voyages between Rostock and Barrow-in-Furness were necessary for SAL to successfully close the project.

Interesting to know, with the Dynamic Positioning System SAL has the ability to offer their clients even larger assistance in offshore subsea installations, offshore wind power plant erection and transportation of heavy and unconventional cargo.
