Daco Heavy Lift – transport of 7 wind turbines with blade-lifter in Guatemala

Tin Tức



Our project consisted of the transport of 7 Vestas V112 wind turbines, from the port of Puerto Quetzal in Guatemala to the Viento Blanco Wind Farm, in the town of Los Ríos. The route covered 80 kilometers, of which 70 kilometers via highway. The last 10 kilometers, however, presented some serious logistical challenges, as this winding road with extremely tight turns goes up a mountain towards an active volcano, with gradients of up to 18% and inclines of up to 13%. The various sections of the wind turbines (63 in total) were transported to the jobsite at night due to traffic issues. The blades, on the other hand, had to be transported during daytime, as these were transported using a Goldhofer FTV300 blade-lifter and optimum visibility was required to avoid running into any obstacles along the route. The actual transport of the components started on the 15th of August 2015 and ended with the delivery of the last blade, on the 24th of September 2015.
