Manora Logistics moving secondary steel for two US wind farms
The independent forwarding and transport consultancy company, Manora Logistics, has recently been putting the pieces in the puzzle to move project cargo for two US offshore wind farms. The company’s offices in Belgium and the United States have been hard at work transporting cargo for two of the first offshore wind farms under construction in the US.
Partnering with companies in Poland, Manora Logistics has been shipping 40ft containers with secondary steel components from various factories via Bremerhaven in Germany, to the United States. Upon arrival, Manora Logistics’ colleagues in Virginia take over the transport and move the parts to ProvPort.
ProvPort has been chosen by joint-venture partners Ørsted and Eversource as a regional offshore wind hub. The new 228-foot long facility is being used for advanced fabrication and assembly of foundation platforms for Ørsted and Eversource’s joint-venture offshore wind projects serving Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York.
That partnership includes at least 1,700 MW of offshore wind under development, including the 704-megawatt Revolution Wind project serving Rhode Island and Connecticut; the 132-megawatt South Fork Wind serving Long Island, and the 924-megawatt Sunrise Wind project serving New York.
According to Manora Logistics, every week some six 40ft containers are shipped towards PortProv with about 100 more to go. The company noted that a total of 77 offshore wind farm foundations are currently under construction, and that the wind farms should be fully operational by 2025.
