Maersk Vestas contract Besides integrated logistics for conventional, containerized products, Maersk offers also out-of-gauge and special cargo shipments as part of its Maersk Project Logistics (MPL) business.

Another example for these heavy lift capabilities of Maersk is a new project from the leading Danish renewable energy company Vestas.

As a global leader in renewable energy solutions, Vestas has awarded Maersk with an important contract for transporting the extra heavy powertrains of its largest ever built wind turbine V236. This heart-piece of the 15MW turbine weighs 260 tons alone and will be installed in the nacelle in Vesta’s factory in Lindø, Denmark. Maersk will manage the transport with special equipment from the assembly site in Lommel, Belgium via Antwerp to the port of Lindø. The powertrain is one of a number of large components of the nacelle. The final V236 nacelle has a total weight of more than 630 tons including the powertrain.

At a later stage, Maersk will also move the V236 powertrains to a new Vestas factory in Poland. Maersk is building a full supply chain solution for all cargo flows inbound manufacturing into both production sites in Denmark and Poland. Apart from heavy lift transports, Maersk is also taking care of Vesta’s containerized cargo as well as air freight, customs services, intermodal and warehousing as part of a fully integrated logistics solution on a global scale.

"Since our cooperation started, Maersk has proven to be a very capable and optimal partner who can serve a lot of our logistics needs globally out of one hand. An integrated supply chain solution which is being designed and built together with a strategic partner adds visibility and thus resilience to our logistics operations as well as a lot of ease while executing our complex logistics business. It has been an exciting joint journey which we will continue and expand." Damien Lhors, Group Senior Vice President of Global Supply Chain and Transport at Vestas.

"For more than two years, we have been working for Vestas in a close partnership, developing exciting heavy lift projects as well as normal containerized cargo. We are extremely honoured about being the preferred and trusted partner for Vestas. The transport requires complex logistics capabilities and experience, which makes us even more proud to be selected by the world’s leading renewable energy company." Claus Svane Schmidt, Global Head of Maersk Project Logistics.

Maersk provides project logistics services across industries such as renewable energy sector, power generation, automotive, industrial manufacturing, but also government contracted logistics as well as aid and relief. The MPL offering includes the full spectrum of planning, orchestration and end-to-end specialised transportation services to manage the flow of project-related cargo according to the unique sequence, schedule and conditions of each project.
