Large Wind Turbine Shipped to Narec in Blythe

Lysander Shipping recently arranged the import and delivery of a large wind turbine Nacelle from Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea to NAREC testing facility in Blythe. The shipment consisted of a number of pieces, the largest was 16.5m x 7m x 7m and weighing 293 tons. Due to the weight Port of Blythe had to reinforce an area of the quayside to accommodate this heavy piece of cargo.

With careful planning and preparation the cargo was offload using vessel crane direct to waiting SPMT, on which it was delivered to the local testing facility.
