Kuehne + Nagel supports NEOM city Saudi Arabia project

Wind turbines for NEOM city in Saudi Arabia.

As part of a NEOM city Saudi Arabia project, Kuehne + Nagel has secured a contract from wind turbine supplier, Envision Energy.

The freight task involves the transportation  of 190 wind turbine generators (WTG – approx. 1.4 million tonnes) and 67 tower sets.

This major project is expected to be completed in 2025.

A team of more than 100 project logistics professionals, vessel chartering experts, transport engineers, drivers and riggers, will work together to ensure the success of the operation.

A dedicated office has been established in the city of Tabuk, Saudi Arabia, to coordinate teams at NEOM’s port and the wind farm site.

NEOM ‘new future’ is a special economic zone in the northwest of Saudi Arabia and is intended to become a model for sustainable urban living powered entirely by renewable energy.

One of the best-known NEOM projects is ‘The Line’, a carbon-neutral linear smart city currently under construction on the Red Sea.

When completed, the NEOM wind farm will generate 1.67 GW of renewable energy to power the plant of the NEOM Green Hydrogen Company, the world’s largest facility for producing hydrogen on a large scale.

“This is a major milestone in Kuehne + Nagel’s Roadmap 2026, our new strategy that we presented in March this year,” said Kuehne + Nagel International CEO, Stefan Paul.

“We see great potential in providing solutions for renewable energy customers and the NEOM project is a testament to our logistics expertise in this high-growth field that supports the global energy transition.”
