The first nacelle leaves Montoir

Atlantique Manutention performed loading operations on March 19th on M/V Palembang for Haliade 150 offshore wind turbine nacelle produced by the new General Electric (former Alstom) factory at Montoir de Bretagne.


Ordered by EDF Nacelle_Alstom_PSEN, the nacelle will be installed at the Osterild test site.

The entire project (including other components of the turbine) was directed by OCTRA, a French engineering and transport board, recently based in Montoir and headquartered in Paris.

This was the first lo-lo handling operation to be conducted for this type of nacelle.


The previous nacelles were loaded by ro-ro operation at the Saint Nazaire dock basins. The 422-tonne nacelle was conveyed by specialist haulage firm Transports Scales on 18th March from the factory to the TGO terminal, where it was stored pending loading.
