Custom-Tailored Transportation Options:

Water & Barge Transportation

Deep water barge transportation provides attractive benefits such as increased energy-efficiency, reduced costs, and dramatically reduced shipping time.

Truck Transportation

Challenges of truck transportation include the fragmented regulatory system under which the trucking industry operates, roadway restrictions for super loads varying state-by-state, and more. Truck transport is most commonly used on the final leg of the jouney to the wind farm.

Rail Transportation

Railroad transportation delivers an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative for wind tower shipments. Broadwind Energy's manufacturing facilities offer direct access to rail transporation hubs.
