8 October 2012: TURBINE DELIVERY TO COMMENCE FROM 15 OCTOBER
Work at Roos Wind Farm is progressing well. The next major event will be the delivery of the wind turbines. The components will begin to arrive on site from the week commencing 15th October 2012 and will continue for a period of approximately eight weeks.
The turbines, manufactured by Vestas, will be transported in sections (blades, three tower sections, hubs and nacelles*) using specially designed heavy goods vehicles. There will be one convoy per day, consisting of between two and a maximum of five vehicles per convoy. The convoys will depart from Hull Docks and arrive on site approximately 1.5 hours later. The deliveries have been scheduled to avoid rush hour traffic and will take place Monday to Friday, with an occasional delivery on Saturday.
