Blades for a windmill shipped from Aarhus
With the transition to clean energy, wind power is playing an increasingly important part in the generation of energy. Windmills are shipped overseas on vessels and they are usually transported by lorry to the final destination.
On 26 April 2022, the ro-ro vessel Finnpulp set a course from Aarhus to Helsinki, carrying three giant 54-metre windmill blades and the hub. Tower sections had been shipped earlier.
Large project cargo is shipped regularly. However, every special cargo transportation starts with a detailed plan, including a thorough examination of options and contingencies. Finnlines’ Denmark office together with colleagues in Travemünde and Finnlines’ cargo handling team, organised the transport successfully.
