Transportation of wind turbine blades is a complex, time consuming and costly operation, with increasing project costs, new tooling needs and higher logistics demands. The blades are long - growing in size year by year - and they are challenging to move from one place to another as you need to take both physical and legal limitations into account.

To provide for a safe transportation the securing should be in line with current regulations and you must also prioritize the safety and working conditions of the people handling the equipment. Wind turbine blades are expensive and critical to the wind turbine so a damage to the blade will not only result in a substantial cost but also risk delaying the installation project.

Consequently, wind turbine transportation must be taken seriously and to meet all conditions a modular solution is preferred that you can adapt to the individual task.
