Wind Turbines: The Story Behind the Shipment

We continue to recognize how what we do day-in and day-out at ZMac can make a fundamental difference in people’s lives. From natural disasters, such as Tsunami relief or Hurricane Harvey recovery to endangered species conservation, there will always be a story behind our shipments that reinforces our commitment to doing the right thing for our customers. This again was the case when we put our efforts into facilitating the transport of OD freight used to develop a clean, cost-effective, renewable energy source.

The Answer is Blowin’ in the Wind

There is an undeniable momentum building behind harvesting clean energy. Across the globe, wind power has emerged as a readily available source of renewable energy. Wind is sustainable, as a naturally occurring form of solar energy. As long as the sun shines and the wind blows, wind energy can be harnessed. Wind is also pure and clean, producing no atmospheric emissions that pollute the air and impact our environment and our health. It’s no wonder that over 25,000 wind turbines are in operation across the world, capturing wind power and generating electricity to areas near and far. The future of wind power is growing by leaps and bounds.

What’s the Story Behind the Shipment?

Wind turbines. That’s the integral machine that transforms the wind into renewable energy. And to build those wind turbines, you need over-dimensional, oversized parts. That’s where we came in. We coordinated the delivery of reusable concrete template rings used for the foundation of wind turbines. Each load was 15 feet 6 inches long, 15 feet 6 inches wide, 3 feet high, and 42,000 pounds. These loads traveled to New Jersey and Florida, with their final destination in South America to help meet the demand for clean, cost-effective, renewable energy.
