RENEWABLE ENERGY LOGISTICS AND TRANSPORT SPECIALISTS
Renewable energy cargo can be bulky and in the majority of cases requires door-to-door transportation of a large number of containers from one continent to another or urgent air freight delivery. On average, such projects take a year and a half to come to fruition due to the socioeconomic, environmental and governmental factors involved.
90% of shipments are DAP and require door-to-door service with efficient handling at all stages of the project, from collection at the factory, through to warehousing and ultimately, delivery at the farm or power station, taking into account the most appropriate methods of transport at all times. This means that most cases require specialist project cargo handling.
We have expert staff dedicated to handling these types of projects, in addition to our Project Cargo division, which specialises in the transport of industrial projects involving oversized and heavy cargo.
International logistics and transport services for any element necessary in the assembly of a solar plant, including solar modules, fixed solar structure, solar trackers, inverters or transformation centres, machinery, etc.
Logistics and consultancy for the international transport of wind components and spare parts for the assembly and installation or maintenance of wind farms such as nacelle, drive train, hub, tower sections or blades among others.
LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS FOR THE RENEWABLE ENERGY INDUSTRY
Shipping is the main method of transport used when a renewable energy plant needs to be set up and maintained due to the large amount of equipment involved, its size and the distances covered.
Urgent shipments to send replacement components and maintain the plants. Air freight is the fastest way to cover long distances between suppliers and the site or plant.
If your materials come from different suppliers, multi-supplier consolidation is the best logistics solution for the renewable energy industry. We group the goods from your various suppliers together so that containers are transported carrying only your cargo.
This leads to significant savings of time and money given that once the containers have arrived in port they are transferred directly to your warehouse, thus reducing destination handling costs.
We offer advice on documentation, customs processes and procedures as well as on any potential tax and customs advantages available.
For example, the owner of a renewable energy plant could be entitled to preferential customs tariffs set out by the country of destination under a special customs scheme for imports of material as capital goods or fixed assets.
SOME EXAMPLES OF OUR PROJECTS
- TRANSPORTING A WIND TURBINE NACELLE FROM JAPAN TO NAVARREWe resolved the complex problem of how to transport a wind turbine nacelle in a convoy the size of a football pitch.
- TWO SOLAR FARMS IN CHILE (160MW AND 90MW)At the request of an international Italian manufacturer of inverters, transformers and string boxes we transported over 400 TEUs, both SOC and COC, door to door from Italy to the site in Chile between June 2015 and March 2016. Containers left from the ports of Antofagasta and Angamos and were transported to the commune of María Elena in the Tocopilla province in the northern region of Antofagasta (II) and to Carrera Pinto in the commune of Copiapó in the Atacama region (III), Chile.
- SOLAR FARM IN CHILE (62MW)For this project, an EPC firm from Greece hired us for the door-to-door transportation of transformers from Turkey, cable from Italy and machinery from Spain, making up a total of approximately 150 TEUs in special equipment (open-top containers for out-of-gauge (OOG) loads), dry cargo containers and Ro-ro cargo to the Sierra Gorda commune.
- SOLAR FARM IN MEXICO (580MW)A project for a Spanish EPC firm in which we carried out a door-to-door service from Spain to Mexico, including customs clearance in both countries, to transport a total of 800 TEUs of cable, corrugated tubes and fencing for a solar farm, which will be the biggest in Latin America.
TYPES OF RENEWABLE ENERGY
Renewable energies, also known as “clean energies”, are inexhaustible and increasingly competitive sources of energy that differ from fossil fuels because of their diversity, abundance and potential for use anywhere in the world. However, its distinctive feature is that they do not produce greenhouse gases -causing climate change- nor polluting emissions that could be dangerous for the planet.
