Bolloré Transport & Logistics handles project cargo movement in Côte d’Ivoire
Bolloré Transport & Logistics Côte d’Ivoire, with the support of the Africa projects department, recently planned out the transport of project cargo for the AZITO IV power plant extension project.
The company handled the transport from the port of Abidjan to the power plant site, located on the other side of the lagoon. The AZITO IV extension project aims to increase the production capacity of the power plant from 450 MW to 700 MW.
The equipment delivered to the project site included many heavy and oversized packages that required a complex logistical solution due to their weight and size (up to 358 tons and 30 meters long). After advanced technical studies, Bolloré Transport & Logistics implemented a dedicated transport solution by barge and SPMT (self-propelled modular trailers), to overcome the pinch points which were faced while reaching the site by road.
The project will end in October 2021 with the delivery of the last 254 tons steam turbine to the AZITO site, Bolloré Transport & Logistics said in its statement.
