Transport of a 39 metre wind turbine blade

Friday, 21 June 2019 12:10

In December 2018, Certion took delivery of a V80 blade with a length of 39 metres for repair in our workshop.

Since our location in Lelystad features a conditioned free space of 55 x 22 metres, this operation did not pose any problems. Having said that, an up-to-date infrastructure is equally important.

The exit from the A6 motorway leading to the Certion premises ensured problem-free access for such a special transport exercise. Special, because the length of the blade (39 metres) is approximately equal to that of three average-sized truck combinations. It is also thanks to Certion's wide access road, realised last year, that longer transports can reach our business premises without any infrastructural adjustments. The 39 metre blade was therefore quickly delivered and unloaded. Upon completion of the repair, the blade was collected and transported to the customer in March 2019.
