Crane and transport contractor Havator AB has been awarded the contract to erect 23 wind turbines in Sweden for Nordex Sverige AB.

Havator will carry out the main logistics and crane services on the four wind parks for the turbine manufacturer. The order is worth nearly Euro 2 million. "The contract covers lifting, land transport and handling at the harbour in four projects. Together these projects have 23 wind turbines," explained Mika Kolehmainen, Havator Wind project director.

Work will be done between May and August 2009. Output of the turbines is 2.5 MW each, giving a total of 57.5 MW.

"Havator Group has 20 years' experience in wind power. In 2007 we extended our range of services, adding transport and assembly in addition to lifting and planning services. The key to success is the experienced personnel with wide international experience together with modern and versatile machine fleet. This way we can follow the high standards of safety and quality that our clients require," said Kolehmainen.

Finland-based Havator Group also operates in Sweden, Norway, Russia and the Baltic States. Group sales are about Euro 100 million and there are more than 560 employees.
