Blue Waters largest wind project in Asia
The design phase for White Rock wind farm in Australia was officially launched in May 2016. Blue Water Shipping will transport the 70 x 2.5 MW Goldwind G121 turbines to be installed in the park. Blue Water's office in Singapore is responsible for the task.
"The optimism surrounding the development of the Australian market, is influenced by political objectives and focus on renewable energy," says Bjarke R. Nielsen from Blue Water Singapore. He adds that the development of the wind industry in Australia is expected to develop positively in the future.
Over the years, Blue Water Singapore has built up valuable experience with wind projects in Asia. Based on extensive knowledge of European wind projects, Blue Water has established itself as a dominant player in the Asian wind market through innovative solutions and good planning. Blue Water Singapore, together with the company's offices in Shanghai and Sydney, will be in charge of transport to what is Blue Water's largest wind project in Asia to date.
"We'll manage sea freight from China to Newcastle, where we'll also handle storage. From Newcastle, the turbines are driven 515 kilometers to the site, where we are also involved in the reading. The turbine blades are 60 meters long - the longest ever used for a project in Australia - so it's an interesting task for us," says Bjarke R. Nielsen.
