AMIX gives $300m windmill farm a lift in Nanaimo

It takes a special kind of crane to lift the gigantic     components of a modern-day windmill off the deck of a ship. Especially when the operation has to be approached from the water. Amix Heavy Lift were commissioned to offload the 100 foot long steel casings from ship to shore using their flagship Arctic Tuk crane which can lift up to 600 Tons. The barge-mounted crane was chosen for practical and safety considerations that a land-based crane could not easily handle at the Duke Point facility. Once assembled, along with generator hubs and rotating blades, these massive lengths of steel, each weighing up to 60 Tons, will become a virtual forest of wind turbines. The $300m project will be completed at Cape Scott on the north west tip of Vancouver Island. Amix Heavy Lift will continue to be involved with the delicate ship to shore lifting operations until all the wind turbine components are safely landed.
