Specialist heavy and project transport contractor Collett & Sons in the UK has bought the wind turbine transport division of MDF Transport.

Collett Transport takes ownership of the Great Yarmouth-based company's specialist vehicle and trailer fleet and moves the project operations in-house with its current projects team at their port and heavy lift storage depot at Goole.

David Collett, Collett & Sons managing director, said, "We see this as a strategic move to both bolster our current wind turbine transport fleet and to add value to the wind energy market. We now have a greater capacity and can use the expertise of our projects department, marine division and consulting services to build on the foundations that MDF started, and so are able to offer this to their clients.

Mark Farrow, MDF managing director, said, "After much deliberation we recognise that there is serious investment in equipment and resources required to operate in this market, so the decision was made to step forwards in this way and concentrate on our oil and gas exploration transport activities. We would like to wish Colletts every success in this largely complex and challenging business."

Collett has already been operating in the wind turbine transport sector for around 12 years, offering turnkey solutions for component delivery worldwide. Contracts include managing large projects, for example, on the Gordon Bush wind farm consisting of 35 turbines in the Scottish Highlands.
