Carrying the Wind on QGRY


At Quebec-Gatineau Railway, moving dimensional loads is a challenge we love to take on.

In 2018, the railway was asked to haul the longest blades of wind turbines ever transported to North America on behalf of the company Vestas.

The blades are 210 feet long each. Each of them is loaded on two 89-foot flat cars plus a removable half-platform to allow the train to negotiate curves. In comparison, the longest wind turbine blades built in Canada measure 55.8 meters (180.4 feet) and are already 23% longer than ordinary blades! 

An exceptional transport, where every detail is calculated.
