ALS' onshore success with Wind Logistics
Have you ever wondered what is entailed when it comes to the logistics of a Renewable Wind Project?
Recently, the ALS’ multilingual and highly experienced team in Sweden has successfully operated the project management of 74,053 tonnes of wind farm equipment from port to site in 9 months.
This particular project involved 1515 components which were unloaded, stored and then reloaded to transport equaling 149 complete turbines unloaded and moved to 5 different wind farms.
Coordination and detailed planning was key to this project with 6 transport companies working together to achieve 1500 deliveries to the sites.
So where do you start to accomplish such a project?
Firstly, feasibility and site visits are carried out to measure port capabilities, understand risk and assess roads, storage and hard stands. Secondly, other resource requirements such as vessel charters, cranes, stevedores, site personnel, inventory management and transport provision within the port area are also considered.
To achieve the project brief and, normally a very tight schedule, a detailed project plan with project milestones alongside a risk management strategy is put together.
