At Siemens Wind Power appeared a giant cargo ship with a horizontal load
Recently, Siemens Wind Power A / S, the Danish division of Siemens AG, is engaged in the production of wind power plants, received a new transport ship made specifically for the transport of wind turbines and their components. It looks great!
Two years ago, in the Siemens Wind Power have started to review the company's approach to transportation and delivery of goods, and then decide to buy a new transport cargo ships with horizontal loading and unloading system. One ship has recently been demonstrated to work.
Transport called Rotra Vente, its length - 141 meters, at a time he was capable of carrying several huge nacelles of wind turbines with a capacity of 8 MW. Each of these turbines is an impressive structure. For example, SWT-7.0-154, the top model of the wind turbine from Siemens Wind Power, reaches a height of two hundred meters in an assembled state and mounted blades. Sam generator weighs 220 tons. In short, the carrier will have to engage in the transportation of very large and heavy structures.
the construction of the vessel involved in the company Deugro Denmark, which took as a basis and thoroughly refined the container.
Currently in full swing the creation of one more of this type of ship designed for transporting wind turbine towers and blades. It is expected that the new truck will be able to simultaneously accommodate up to 12 blades, the length of each of which can reach up to 80 meters.
