Heavy-duty transport of the NEG Micon wind turbine from Germany to Kazakhstan. The loading was done by heavy-duty cranes. The three long and relatively light rotor blades were loaded on a truck, the tower parts (34 tons, 35 tons and 21 tons)on a low loader each, the 34-tons generator nacelle additionally on an additional low loader. All together, seven trucks were necessary for the very long journey.
The transportation of wind turbines to Kazakhstan can be classified as oversized and heavy loads. The transit countries Poland, Belarus and Russia demand different special permissions as well as a police escort. The complex logistics asks for a meticulous planning and the usage of heavy machines such as low loader and semi-low loader. Without a competent logistics partner, a Herculean task like this can´t be realized. The first successful transports have impressively demonstrated this fact. A special challenge were the light and long rotor blades. Their transport can be compared with the handling of raw eggs, that have to be transported over long distances without any damage. On the other hand, there were the extremely heavy generator nacelles that had to be transported over the same long distances to some remote areas and construction sites with difficult access. In the end, this logistical masterpiece could successfully be fulfilled, enabled by our expertise and the cooperation with national and international authorities.
