Blue Water has from July to November, on behalf of our client Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, been involved in an interesting project of supplying transport and logistics services to an onshore wind farm in Indonesia.
The 75MW Sidrap Wind Farm is located in the Sidrap province in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. It will be Indonesia’s first utility-scale wind farm and is scheduled to be producing power to the South Sulawesi PLN grid in late 2017.
“Our part of the project included six shipments consisting of blades, hubs and nacelles for the 30 turbines as well as general cargo. The heaviest component was a nacelle weighing 107 tons. The blades were loaded in Qinhuangdao in China, nacelles, hubs and general cargo in Bilbao, Spain and port of discharge was Pare Pare in Indonesia, a first time event for Pare Pare port. The project was carried out in a perfect teamwork between Blue Water’s offices in Esbjerg, China and Singapore and proceeded on schedule”, says Sebastian Stackelies, who was the Project Manager at Blue Water Singapore.
