The movement of a wind farm support vessel, constructed in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, covered only a short distance, but required operating to very tight tolerances.

With over 40 years of experience in transporting large plant and machinery, Kingswell had to crane the vessel out of it’s construction shed and then utilise a 60 ton 4-axle extendable Broshuis full steer trailer to effect the move over the difficult site.

Working with only 50mm to spare between keel and trailer, they had to negotiate boatyard buildings and uneven terrain to reach a successful outcome.
