The development of wind energy in Gaeta

 

The motor ship Atlant Regine berthed at Gaeta’s Commercial Port on Monday August 8. It was a very important event for the ports of Rome and Lazio, since a cargo ship has sailed to Australia for the first time in Italy. The most remarkable thing about the event is the fact the largest carrot producer in the world will use wind turbines to satisfy its own energy needs.
 
Atlant Regine’s special cargo transportation includes the important delivery of 20 wind turbines. A wind station was completely disassembled and moved to Gaeta’s port together with all components of the wind turbines (towers, nacelles, hubs, rotors, generators, inverter containers, blades and further precision components).
 
Handling and shipping procedures were carried out by intergroup, that has developed considerable professional expertise and boasts high technology equipment at Civitavecchia and Gaeta’s ports belonging to Lazio network. Apart from performing standard handling operations, it also carried out a wide range of very peculiar activities (in order to comply with Australia’s strict quarantine laws).
 
It wouldn’t have been possible to conclude this important international project without the proactive support of all companies belonging to this sector and the synergistic collaboration of the Port Authority of Rome and Lazio, the Corps of the Port Captaincies and Gaeta’s Customs Office.
