GAC Dubai completes wind turbine delivery
184mt tub collar makes Shanghai to Sharjah journey
Transportation company GAC Dubai has completed the shipping and lifting of a 184mt wind turbine tub collar that will be used at a wind carrier project in Sharjah.
While the size of the unit complicated the process, GAC revealed it had to work with port authorities in both China and Dubai to determine the best tidal conditions for the transport ship to sail.
David Burck, general manager, logistics, GAC Dubai said that he was pleased the operation went smoothly.
"GAC has a long track record in managing odd and off-size shipments, and we fully understand that each shipment requires unique attention and dedicated service,” said Burck. “Our team has the solid experience and expertise to take care of even the most challenging and unique of project cargos."

The 30-year veteran in freight forwarding brings in-depth experience across the Middle East, Europe and Asia to his new role, including 11 years of being based in Dubai.
GAC also recently supported student racing team, Team RedShift in the ‘F1 in Schools’ technology challenge in Malaysia. While Australian team, Pentagliders, were crowned champions, the UAE team won the Innovative Thinking Award, receiving the Lotus Renault GP Trophy. Fellow Dubai College and Aminudin Baki Secondary School students from team Axis won the Best Team Identity Award.
