Wind power at stable levels during 2022

As in previous years we continue to handle steady volumes of wind power parts in the port also in 2022. This year we have or will receive 50 wind turbines in total, for two different customers. All the projects we handle this year are intended for Swedish windparks, situated in Strömstad, Årjäng and Sunne among other places.

One projects that we already have received is the one which arrived with the vessel Herbert. As part of her first journey, the so-called maiden voyage, M/V Herbert called at Port of Uddevalla in early May. She was a very impressive sight to see, with ten fully complete wind turbines loaded onboard.

On her maiden voyage M/V Herbert had already called at several other ports for loading, in China, Vietnam and India. However, Uddevalla was the vessels first port for discharging and we discharged six of the ten wind turbines. The wind power parts were then transported on to Åmål, where they will form the new windpark Kingebol.

The wind turbines that we receive today are divided into six tower sections, which when assembled measure about 200 meters high. The Rotorblades are up to 84 meters long.
