Renewable Energy

Supporting Green Energy Companies with Transport Services.

The renewable energy sector has seen extensive growth in recent years, particularly with wind power technology due to the government’s ongoing aim of reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. 

At Solent Gateway, we have a proven track record in supporting the renewable energy sector, with potential for growth complemented by our global transport connections and port-centric facilities. 

We understand that every project is different, that’s why our working in partnership approach allows us to provide the best possible solution for a customer’s unique needs. 

Solent Gateway is well equipped to undertake all types of renewable energy cargo with suitable infrastructure, an experienced team to complement any project.

What experience does Solent Gateway have within renewable energy?

We have an extensive track record of success working within the renewable energy sector. Specialising in large and out of gauge cargo we have handled some of the largest offshore wind turbine blades. 

Solent Gateway was responsible for the transport of the largest offshore wind turbine blades in the world for the record breaking V164-8.0 MW Turbine from Vestas on the Isle of Wight.

Our transport links, extensive land availability and experience in project cargo make us the top choice for the transportation of wind powered projects. 

Our Marchwood port is one of only a few ports in the UK with the capability to offer storage for items 120m+ in length, proving we have the capability to aid many renewable energy projects no matter the size of the cargo.
