Ensuring the safe, on-time, and on-budget delivery of wind turbine components—from point of origin to project site
Transporting wind turbine components requires specialized equipment and skills, as well as a keen eye for the safety of such a large capital investment. It also requires significant experience with complex supply chains to ensure components are delivered to the project site promptly and in the proper sequence.
