These contracts are part of an OEG Offshore (OEG) new venture. OEG is working with New World Logistics, (NWL), who has extensive experience in international multimodal transport and heavy lift in the rapidly growing windfarm industry in Vietnam.
The scope of the operation included unloading long wind blades from the vessels, nacelles and towers, as well as accessories, to portside locations. Next, onto heavy duty tractors and modular trailers or blade lifters to make the long journey to construction holding areas. This ensured that installation was on time.
Dan Greeves is the Head of OEG Offshore Renewables. He stated that “negotiating winding mountain roads with 68.8m Blades, 86.9-tonne nacelles, and 31.2-tonne Hubs presented unique challenges, demanding the use either extendable trailers or modular and pulled by heavy-duty tractor with horsepower up to 250-tonnes.
These onshore wind projects presented additional logistical challenges. It was difficult to transport such valuable components safely from port to holding area. A professional team worked hard to secure the components and prevent any damage.”
“There’s a lot of offshore wind potential in Vietnam. The ambition of the Vietnamese Government is to create a sustainable green economy.”
Vietnam offers new opportunities for OEG to harness renewable energy in accordance with its vision of delivering services throughout the entire scenario of global wind farms developments.
OEG is active in over 35 countries and has recently acquired three renewable-focused businesses. This expansion of its essential products and services to offshore energy sector has been a success. OEG also has plans to acquire more.
