DAKO completes wind equipment moulds delivery to Mexico
Freight forwarding specialist DAKO Worldwide Transport has completed the last leg of project cargo transport for Nordex, the onshore wind turbines manufacturer. The last leg entailed the overland transport of the equipment from the port of Brownsville, Texas to the final destination of Matamoros, Mexico.
To remind, at the end of November DAKO loaded a total of 3,500 cubic metres of wind equipment moulds at the Yangzhou Port in China. DAKO was contracted to carry out on-shore transport at origin and destination, as well as off-shore handling of the project cargo. The delivery and loading of the units at the Chinese port has been handled in cooperation with Protranser International Logistics.
Project cargo was delivered on the deck of the bulk carrier Senanur Cebi that arrived in the port of Brownsville, Texas on December 28 according to the vessel’s AIS data.
From there, DAKO completed the overland transport of 3,500 cubic metres of wind equipment moulds to the final destination of Matamoros in Mexico where Nardex’s rotor blade production facility is located.
The Matamoros facility is currently operated by the American rotor blade manufacturer TPI Composites under a strategic partnership agreed in July last year. Over a three-year period, both partners aim to increase the efficiency and output of the rotor blade production, which mainly serves the American markets.
The group has a local blade factory in Tamaulipas and a concrete tower production facility in Nuevo Leon. In addition to the manufacturing facilities, Nordex Group also develops projects within the country.
