Collett Transport, based in Yorkshire, delivered the components for 11 Senvion 3.4MW wind turbines from the Port of Immingham, near Hull, northeast England, 100 miles west to the Crook Hill project site just outside Rochdale, Greater Manchester. 

The towers, nacelles and 50 metre-long blades  for the 11 turbines were transported to the site. The route from port to project went through the UK's hilly Peak District.

Delivery of the components from the port to Crook Hill took two to three months over the summer of 2015, according to Collett and the project was fully completed in August 2015. 

The 37.4MW Crook Hill project was developed by the Partnerships for Renewables group - a business set up by the UK's Carbon Trust advisory firm to help build renewable energy projects on publically-owned land.
