Shipping firm Blue Water has transported breakbulk components from China and Spain to the Sidrap Wind Farm in South Sulawesi, Indonesia.
The complex assignment involved six separate shipments consisting of blades, hubs, nacelles and ancillary cargo on behalf of Siemens Gamesa, with the largest components weighing 107 tons. Carriage was arranged jointly by Blue Water’s offices in Denmark, China and Singapore
“The blades were loaded in Qinhuangdao in China, nacelles, hubs and general cargo in Bilbao, Spain, and port of discharge was Pare Pare in Indonesia, a first time event for Pare Pare port,” said Sebastian Stackelies, project manager at Blue Water Singapore.
Blue Water operates 55 offices in more than 26 countries worldwide and is headquartered in Esbjerg on the west coast of the Jutland peninsula in southwest Denmark.
