Overview

ALE is demonstrating its wind expertise and capabilities as they start the receiving operations of GE wind turbines components in Oman for the Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC) first-ever large-scale wind farm.

The global heavylifting contractor, has been contracted for the Dhofar Wind Power Project, to receive, transport and install 13 wind turbine generators, which consist of almost 100 large components.

ALE started to receive the components, comprising blades, tower sections, nacelles and hubs at Port of Duqm in September. Upon completion of custom clearance, all components were taken to ALE’s laydown area, close to the port, which was beneficial for the project.

The components will be transported 590km overland to the Dhofar Wind Power Project site, two components of the wind turbine generator with each convoy. Due to the sheer size and scale of the convoy, with components measuring up to 65m long and weighing up to 100t each, the items will be escorted by the police.

“The client recognised our successful track record working on similar wind power projects in the world as well as our ability to work effectively with local government requirements and provide full logistical and installation solutions,” explained Shafic Tillawi, Country Manager – Oman.

“By utilising our wind-specific equipment and personnel with the vital wind expertise, we can provide a timely solution with one, simplified interface.”
