Port of Gävle prepared for increased import of windmills

The import of wind turbines to the Port of Gävle continues to increase. After extensive preparatory work, Yilport Gävle is now equipped to cope with this year's record-high inflow of wind turbines. More than 1,800 parts—wings, turbines, and towers—must be unloaded and stored before being transported to Scandinavian wind power projects.

At the end of March, all preparations were completed for the massive assignment. Staff have been trained for eg. the precision of driving required to move extremely long parts—that can weigh up to 90 tonnes—all while maintaining safety. It requires two specially equipped reach-stackers that together move heavy and bulky loads to the storage areas. Three of the six involved reach-stackers have for this purpose been equipped with hooks instead of the usual container bar. In order to not steal capacity from the container terminal, second-hand equipment has been acquired.

“Since it is about short driving distances, and a low-intensity operation, it works well with second-hand equipment that have been carefully inspected and serviced,” says terminal manager Jörgen Flank.
