Collett acquires wind equipment fleet
By Alex Dahm03 February 2022
Specialized transport company Collett & Sons in the UK has boosted its fleet with the acquisition of Plant Speed’s wind energy transport equipment.
Bristol-based Plant Speed is exiting the wind turbine transport sector to focus on its haulage operations, Collett said. Its fleet of super wing carriers, extendable trailers and lift adapters join the fleet of Halifax-based Collett. The fleet includes Nooteboom super wing carriers, quadruple extendable blade trailers and lift adapters, plus specialist adapters, for example, gyrostat tables, loading beds and tower hooks.
Commenting on the expansion of the Collett fleet David Collett, managing director, said, “with several projects scheduled, and currently underway, this move sees Collett strengthen our market position. Having worked in the renewable energy industry for many years, the acquisition of this new trailer equipment is a decisive move for Collett, and one which significantly increases our wind turbine carrying capabilities.”
