Keith Settle, CEO of Oxbo Mega Transport Solutions in the USA, will give delegates at the World Crane and Transport Summit an insight into a challenging project to transport wind turbine components for a wind power project in Oklahoma.

Oxbo Mega Transport, based near Portland, OR, used its Golhofer blade lifter earlier this year to transport some components, including 64 m long turbine blades, to the wind farm site.
