The construction phase of the White Rock Wind Farm in Australia was officially initiated in May 2016. In total, 70 x 2.5 MW Goldwind G121 turbines will be installed. Blue Water will be responsible for the transport of the turbines for the project
Blue Water’s office in Singapore will be responsible for the transport and will together with the company’s offices in Shanghai and Sydney arrange the transport for what will be the largest wind project for Blue Water to date in Asia.
“The optimism surrounding the development on the Australian market is influenced by the political targets and focus on renewable energy”, says Bjarke R. Nielsen from Blue Water Singapore, adding that the development in the wind industry in Australia is expected to develop positively in the near future.
Throughout the years, Blue Water Singapore has built comprehensive experience with wind projects across Asia. Based on a vast experience with wind projects from the European market since 1995, innovative solutions and good planning have enabled Blue Water to gain a strong foothold as one of the dominant players on this market in Asia.
“We will be handling the sea freight from China to Newcastle where we will also be in charge of the storage. From Newcastle, the turbines will be trucked 515 kilometres to the site where we will also be involved in the discharge operations. The turbine blades are 60 metres long – the longest blades ever used in any Australian project – so we have an interesting assignment waiting for us”, says Bjarke R. Nielsen.
