Norton Lilly Cargo Services has over 10 years of experience with project logistics in the wind & renewable energy sector. Norton Lilly has managed large scale projects to move & store wind turbines and blades. These projects consisted of unloading from ocean vessel, storage, port captain/survey services, maintenance, repairs, loading to truck, Inventory control, FTZ operation, loading to truck and over the road transportation. We can provide solutions that cover all aspects involved with the transportation of entire wind farms including logistics of the wind turbine and its components. Norton Lilly Cargo Services has also been involved with the storage of wind turbines and has setup and administered a “ Free Trade Zone ” for the turbines. According to the American Wind Energy Association, over the past 5 years, wind represented 36.5% of all new capacity on the grid. The United States has 60,000 megawatts of wind capacity installed. That’s 45,100 utility-scale wind turbines, which power the equivalent of over 15 million American homes. 6700 of these Turbines were installed last year. Large component manufacturers include 13 utility-scale blade facilities, 12 tower facilities and 12 turbine nacelle assembly facilities, all spread across 18 states. Turbines require over 8,000 component parts and hundreds of facilities to make the components for the thousands of new turbines installed ever year.
Norton Lilly Cargo Services can assist you with all aspects of the transportation of these components. We can also utilize our NVOCC & Freight Forwarder divisions to help you get some of the best ocean rates. If you have an emergency and need a large wind turbine component flown across the country or internationally, Norton Lilly logistics can help. With offices in every port in the country we can have our eyes on the project no matter the location. Transporting wind turbines is a complex task that involves detailed planning, you need a partner with experience in this field not just a general logistics company. We at Norton Lilly strive to be that experienced partner for you .
