Transport upgrades at GeelongPort

Commissioned in conjunction with rail, road and port stakeholders, the recently upgraded rail crossing at GeelongPort’s Corio Quay South precinct is now capable of transporting Vestas’ 67m wind turbine blades from berth to storage in one forward motion. Previous to the works, the smaller 62m blades required multiple turning points to successfully traverse the corridor between berth and laydown area.

GeelongPort’s rail crossing upgrade works began in September 2018 following considerable consultation with all key stakeholders. The final engineered transport solution provided by Rex J Andrews and completed by Harcom, reduces the risk of rail / road interaction by ensuring safe and minimal transit times across the rail corridor.

The partnership between Rex J Andrews, Vestas and GeelongPort will support the berthing, discharge, transportation and storage of wind turbines destined for Regional Victorian wind farm projects.
