The energy transition towards a more sustainable energy production sparks the installation of giant wind turbines onshore and offshore. Leading manufacturers like Vestas, Siemens Gamesa, Goldwind, and General Electric are not only increasing their volumes but also changing the size of the components like their blades. This leads to more and more challenges for shipping companies transporting windturbine components. Leading manufacturers and shipping companies have used the product double twistlock T-12 and it has undoubtedly proved its value in the last years.
A complete windmill is made out of 3 main components with all different properties:
All of them require different handling and securing materials and procedures. The materials to be used range from lashing chains, D-rings, twistlocks, webbings,.. to lollipop fenders and offshore handling sticks for safe handling.
Every producer has its own procedures and requirements but of course, some general principles are to be taken into account.
The double twistlock T-12 is available in different sizes and proved its value already during different shipments of windmill components by leading manufacturers and shipping companies.
Last years, hundreds of windmill components were secured on vessels by Contech lashing materials including the T-12, double twistlock, lashing chains, webbings, bridge fittings, etc. The operation, maintenance, and other details of the double twistlock T-12 can be read in this blog.
Our double twistlock T-12 will increase the operational efficiency of the lashing crew and will make it possible to ship more blades at once.
Increased efficiency and safety at neglectable additional costs, that’s what our T-12 double twist lock is about.
